From 18 February till 4 June 2017 an extraordinary exhibition is hosted at the Doge’s apartments at the Palazzo Ducale in Venice.
Wild visions, convulsive scenes, hallucinatory landscapes with cities burning in the background, monsters and dreamlike creatures of the strangest shapes: this is the world of Jheronimus Bosch, the fascinating and enigmatic painter who lived between circa 1450 and 1516 in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands.
The exhibition, co-produced by the Fondazione Musei Civici di Venezia and the Museo Nazionale Gallerie dell’Accademia di Venezia, will focus on the three great Bosch paintings conserved in the Gallerie dell’Accademia – two triptychs and four panels – restored to their former glory thanks to a major campaign of restoration financed by the Bosch Research and Conservation Project (BRCP) and the Getty Foundation of Los Angeles, together with almost 50 other contextual works from important public and private international collections, including paintings by such artists as Palma Il Giovane, Quentin Massys, Jan Van Scorel and Joseph Heintz.
Entrance to the exhibition can be purchased separately or as part of the Doge’s Palace Entrance with a little surcharge.
