The World Upside Down
Hieronymus Bosch’s Century

4.6. — 11.9.2016

To mark the 500 years since the death of Hieronymus Bosch, the Bucerius Kunst Forum is highlighting scenes of hell and the dramatic depictions of sin that characterized Dutch art in the sixteenth century. The show will include around 90 works by artists in the generation following Bosch who took up and refined his pictorial vocabulary, spreading it by way of graphic reproductions.

The World Upside Down: Hieronymus Bosch’s Century illustrates how the reception of his work changed along with cultural and intellectual ideas from the end of the Middle Ages into the seventeenth century.

In cooperation with the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden.
