Visit The Garden of Earthly Delights

bosch.PNGHieronymus Bosch, born Jheronimus van Aken (c. 1450 – 9 August 1516) arguably had the wildest, most fantastical imagination in art history — painting our deepest fears, our deepest desires. This August the art world will mark 500 years since his death. “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” is widely recognized as his best known surviving work.bosch

The dimensions of the triptych is quite impressive — 7′ 3″ x 12′ 9″. It was created in  1503–1515, on display at Museo Nacional Del Prado. Seeing it “live”  is a treat to any art lover, but only a few could afford to spend hours on end to take in every detail of the masterpiece. 
That is what I’ve done just now — an hour and a half of “earthly delight” with the painting, not leaving my desk, making screen shots.
