Summary

Español: Las tentaciones de san Antonio Abad, óleo sobre tabla de roble, 73 x 52,5 cm, Madrid, Museo del Prado

Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) was a Dutch painter known for his imaginative and often surreal depictions of religious themes and fantastic landscapes. He lived and worked in the town of 's-Hertogenbosch (also known as Den Bosch) in the Netherlands, where he earned his nickname 'Bosch' (meaning 'forest' in Dutch). His work is characterised by intricate detail, vibrant colours and bizarre imagery, often depicting grotesque creatures and scenes of sin and punishment. Some of his most famous works include "The Garden of Earthly Delights", "The Haywain Triptych" and "The Temptation of St Anthony". Bosch's art has had a lasting influence on Western art, inspiring later artists such as Salvador Dali and the Surrealists.
