Jheronimus (Jeroen) Bosch was born about 1450 in the heart of 's Hertogenbosch as Jheronimus van Aken. He came from a real painter's nest: his father and some of his brothers, among others, were also artists. His work is inextricably linked to the city, where he continued to live all his life. His house, located on the Grote Markt, is already the first point of departure for the inspiration for his visual language.
Hieronymus Bosch made about 25 paintings, but there are also a large number of forgeries and copies of imitators in circulation. It testifies to the great popularity of his work. However, most of his authentic works cannot be found in the Netherlands. For example, would you like to enjoy his absolute masterpieces, such as the Garden of Earthly Delights† Then you will have to travel to the Prado in Madrid.

Of course we also travel extensively The Garden of Earthly Delights, his most famous work. Be amazed by all the details in his work and register now!
