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).

  1. A great favorite of mine, I really like this mans imagination. A truly creative mind!

  2. I saw this in Madrid a couple of years ago, but it was surrounded by people and I couldn’t get close. I think this is a great idea.

  3. Now this is what I call making excellent use of one's imagination! What fine artwork indeed.

  4. Where to start - where to end. I can well imagine a crowd around this work trying to take it all in.
    While the detail is amazing and speaks to a vivid imagination, I think the impact recieved from giving it that first cursory glance is diminished upon further study. Awesome!

  5. That cowled bird head is frightening (along with the other images)!

  6. The blog is so enchanting. You just can’t be resistant to it.
