To mark the 500th year since his death, Het Noordbrabants Museum is presenting the exhibition, ‘Jheronimus Bosch - Visions of genius’, from 13th February to 8th May 2016. For one time only, the majority of his work will return to his city, Den Bosch, officially known as ’s-Hertogenbosch.
The Haywain will be returning to the Netherlands from Madrid for the first time in 450 years. The Spanish king bought the triptych in 1570 for his private collection.
Bosch’s themes are based on tradition, but his artistic language and way of working was entirely modern. His visions were based on religious conviction, realism and fantasy.
Hieronymus Bosch is the most important and most original medieval artist our country has ever produced. It is long-cherished ambition to get the vast majority of his works back to his hometown in 2016. And a great opportunity for a new generation to get acquainted with this work, which is unique in every respect.
