"Triptych of Garden of Earthly Delights"

Hieronymus Bosch - Oil On Panel - 220 x 97 cm - 1504 - (Museo del Prado (Madrid, Spain))

Hieronymus Bosch was a Northern Netherlandish and Renaissance painter. Not much is known about the artist but we can observe the influence of religion in his works which are full of Christian and biblical allusions. The exterior doors of the Triptych displays the ‘third day of creation’, a biblical milestone. When opened, the painting is divided into three panels, the two side panels show the images of a paradise and hell respectively and in between is an enormous garden a ‘false paradise’ – a place of nude people immersed in sensory pleasures, with carnal and lustful symbols like the fish, referencing the phallus in his ancient culture. Bosch’s depiction of Paradise shows God presenting it to Adam and Eve, as they are surrounded by lush forests, and Bosch’s hell showed very detailed severe punishments for sinful acts. This is considered cautionary by many scholars in their interpretation.
