SMACK, “SPECULUM” (2016-2020), installation view
Hieronymus Bosch’s fantastical, large-scale triptych “The Garden of Earthly Delights” has enthralled and mystified viewers for centuries. Painted between 1490 and 1500, the work’s weird and wondrous depictions of paradise and hell continue to capture our attention, reminding us of our own hectic, excessive, and sometimes catastrophic world. Bosch’s masterpiece has been on display at Madrid’s Museo del Prado since 1939, where it has inspired generations of artists, including Surrealists like Dalí and Miró. Today, a new exhibition pays tribute to the lasting influence of this iconic painting and to Bosch’s powerful imagination.
Tributes, or inferior, uninspired, politically correct rip offs? You be the judge.
