What to expect

NOTE: This ticket include access to permanent Collection and the temporary exhibition "Bosch. The 5th Centenary Exhibition". It is indispensable to select the time of the visit when purchasing the ticket.

To mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, the Prado is holding the most comprehensive exhibition ever organised on this Dutch artist. In addition to the works by the artist in the Museum’s collection the exhibition includes exceptional loans, among them The Triptych of the Temptations of Saint Anthony from the Museo de Arte Antiga in Lisbon, as well as paintings lent by leading institutions such as the Albertina and the Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the National Gallery, Washington, the Musée du Louvre, Paris, and the Polo Museale del Veneto, Venice.

This unique and unrepeatable exhibition brings together more than 75% of the artist’s surviving output. The exhibition is divided into five thematic sections with an additional section on Bosch’s drawings. It opens with an introductory area that locates the painter and his work in his native city of ’s-Hertogenbosh, with which he so closely identified, and juxtaposes him with artists working during the same period, such as Alart du Hameel and Adriaen van Wessel.

The exhibition is divided into thematic sections, in addition to an introductory section that locates the painter and his work in his native city of ’s-Hertogenbosh, to which he was so closely associated. Bosch’s work is shown alongside that of other artists working there at the time such as Alart du Hameel and Adriaen van Wesel. In addition, the sections on his work are complemented by a display of paintings, miniatures, drawings and prints that represent some of the subjects Bosch depicted, particularly Hell and the Seven Deadly Sins, either as precedents, as coetaneous with his output or in some cases as sources, with the aim of facilitating a better understanding of the background in which Bosch’s paintings emerged and the personality of some of his patrons, such as Engelbert II of Nassau.
