Jheronimus Bosch - Visions of Genius
421,700 visitors for Hieronymus Bosch exhibition
9 May 2016
The exhibition called 'Jheronimus Bosch – Visions of genius' drew a record number of visitors to the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch. Between 13 February and 8 May 2016, 421,700 people visited the overview exhibition, described by the UK daily newspaper The Guardian as 'one of the most important exhibitions of our century'. It was easily the best-visited exhibition in the almost 180-year history of the Noordbrabants Museum. To date only exhibitions in Amsterdam and The Hague have attracted such visitor numbers in the Netherlands. The exhibition was the high point of the 'Hieronymus Bosch 500' national event year being celebrated in the Netherlands throughout 2016 to mark the 500th anniversary of the artist’s year of death.Read full press release
New discoveries and restored paintings shown for the first time at large-scale Hieronymus Bosch exhibition
11 February 2016
The international exhibition Hieronymus Bosch – Visions of Genius opens this Saturday (13 February) at the Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch, where it will run until 8 May 2016. Hieronymus Bosch is viewed worldwide as the most intriguing and exciting Netherlandish artist of the late Middle Ages. The exhibition includes the lion’s share of his surviving paintings and drawings, and is based on the most comprehensive research ever performed into the artist’s oeuvre: the Bosch Research and Conservation Project (BRCP). Never before have so many of Bosch’s works returned to his home town of ’s Hertogenbosch, where he created them over 500 years ago. His Majesty King Willem-Alexander will officially open the exhibition on Friday 12 February.Read full press release
