S-Hertogenbosch

Jheronimus Bosch Art Center

  Jeroen Boschplein 2      (+31) 736 12 68 90     more than a year ago
In a stylish complex – a former church and its annexes – the life, ideas, and works of this religious artist are presented in various ways. Even 500 years later, Hieronymus Bosch, who lived from around 1450 to 1516 fires one’s imagination. Was he a member of a heretical sect or was he just very religious? In any event, his paintings are about the permanent battle between good and evil, heaven and hell. Unique is also that this collection is not only challenging you to look at the man's art, but also makes you think about his intentions. Real-size reproductions of all his paintings are since 2007 exhibited in the gallery chambers and in the tower. A 15th-century studio has also been furnished in the basement and a film about Bosch’s life is periodically shown on the ground floor. The view of the city from the 40m-high tower is remarkable.

Forget Van Gogh and his overrated museum this painter is even more wacky. The museum is in a church which makes it the perfect surroundings for his masterworks. Even if none of them are here...

This former church is a must see in DB. It's hard to believe that the guy wasn't on drugs when he dreamed up these crazy religious paintings! Definitely check it out.
