EOS The Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch
EXHIBITION ON SCREEN’s film lets viewers explore the once-in-a-lifetime exhibition which brought Hieronymus Bosch masterpieces from around the world back to his hometown in the Netherlands.
UK audiences can enjoy a front row seat to Bosch’s extraordinary homecoming – without the crowds. Accompanied by expert insights from the exhibition’s curators and leading cultural critics, the film delves into the life of the visionary artist to explore the inspiration behind his strange and haunting works. Contributors include maverick filmmaker and artist Peter Greenaway, The Times’ Chief Art Critic Rachel Campbell-Johnston, and Director of the Het Noordbrabants Museum Dr. Charles de Mooij.
The Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch has been chosen by the city of Den Bosch to mark the culmination of Hieronymus Bosch 500, a year-long programme of events to honour the 500th anniversary of the artist’s death. The film is a fitting end to these celebrations, transporting Bosch from his hometown out into cinemas around the world.
