The Garden of Earthly Delights

Jeroen Bosch - The Garden of Earthly Delights (Prado Madrid)

The Garden of Earthly Delights is a triptych by Jeroen (Hieronymus) Bosch (aka El Bosco in Spain), created between 1490 and 1510.  There will be a large exhibition at his place of birth Den Bosch since we're living 500 years after his death in (you guessed it) 1516.

Visit this link to have more info about the painting and to see it in very close detail: (with sounds).
