and His Pictorial World in the 16th and 17th century
To mark the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, the Gemäldegalerie and the Kupferstichkabinett will stage a studio exhibition displaying their holdings of Bosch’s own work, as well as copies made from it and artworks inspired by it. The centrepiece of the exhibition is the oak panel painting St. John on Patmos, one of Bosch’s major works, signed by the artist. Facing this will be four copies based on Bosch’s greatest paintings, including the monumental Last Judgement, by no less a figure than Lucas Cranach the Elder, a copy based on Bosch’s original, now hanging in the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna.
