Engelbert’s Earthly Delights

Visions of a Masterpiece

The exhibition Engelbert’s Earthly Delights offers a new look at Jheronimus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights. See the iconic triptych through the eyes of contemporary artists. From digital paradises to a game-like descent into hell, Eelco Brand, Margit Lukács & Persijn Broersen, SMACK, and Floris Kaayk bring the masterpiece to life in a new way.

Delve into the exciting history of The Garden of Earthly Delights. How did it end up in the Museo del Prado in Madrid? What role did Engelbert II of Nassau, who likely commissioned it, play? Why did this nobleman of the Burgundian court and Knight in the Order of the Golden Fleece choose the theme of Lust?
