About the painter:

Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516) was a Dutch painter whose influence has spread across centuries. He is best known for his fantastical illustrations of religious concepts and narratives, such as moral tales, moral lessons and apocalyptic visions. His works are vivid in color and filled with often grotesque imagery that has been described as “macabre” and “nightmarish”.

Bosch’s most famous painting is The Garden of Earthly Delights, which consists of three panels depicting Heaven, Earth, and Hell. This painting is considered to be one of the best examples of Bosch’s unique style; it displays intricate detail and imaginative creatures alongside traditional Christian iconography. Additionally, Bosch often included elements from Dutch culture in his works such as windmills, ships and plants native to the Netherlands.
