Hieronymus Bosch coming to the Prado

Museo del Prado


The Prado Museum in Madrid is hosting beginning the month of June one of the most awaited exhibits of the year. The occasion is the Fifth Centenary of the death of the Dutch artist Hieronymous Bosch. This could well be the cultural event of the year in the city of Madrid. Not much is known about the late 15th-early 16th century painter but his renowned work “Garden of Delights” is a feast for the senses. As the Tourism Office of the Region of Madrid informs, “a total of 65 works which 25 of them have been attributed to the own Bosch, nine to his workshop, and the rest for other artists of the time. The Prado funds have an important group of works, but also collaborate the Albertina and the Kunsthistorisches Museum of Vienna, the Museum of Fine Arts of Boston, The Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York, the National Gallery of Washington, the Musée du Louvre of Paris, the Polo Museale Veneto of Venice and the Museum of Ancient Art of Lisbon, among others, which will give us the opportunity to see exceptional works as the ‘Triptych of Temptation of St. Anthony’.” From June 1st to September 11, 2016.
