Jheronimus van Aken (c. 1450–1516) was born and lived in the Dutch city of ’s-Hertogenbosch (Bois-le-Duc) in North Brabant; in signing himself ‘Jheronimus Bosch’, he linked his fame to his native city. In Spain, where he was known as ‘el Bosco’, his work earned considerable acclaim at a very early stage. Indeed, eight of the twenty-five surviving paintings attributed to him are still in Spain; most were acquired by King Philip II, who was passionately fond of Bosch’s work.

This book, published for the exhibition staged by the Museo del Prado to mark the 500th anniversary of Bosch’s death, is the work of a select group of experts. It provides up-to-date information on artist’s life and family, examines the data available regarding his patrons, surveys his status as painter and draughtsman and investigates his visual and textual sources and his values and ideology, with particular reference to the Garden of Earthly Delights and his depictions of Hell. The catalogue entries for the paintings belonging to the Prado collection discuss the findings of recent technical research carried out specifically for this exhibition, which has shed new light on these works.

With texts by Pilar Silva Maroto, Eric De Bruyn, Paul Vandenbroeck, Larry Silver, Reindert L. Falkenburg and Fernando Checa Cremades.
