Spanish Royals, Princess Beatrix Visit Hieronymus Bosch Exhibition in Madrid

MADRID – Spain’s King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia joined Princess Beatrix of the Netherlands on Monday at Madrid’s Prado Museum for the opening of an exhibition on the 500th anniversary of the death of Dutch artist Hieronymus Bosch.

Numerous officials and other luminaries, including acting Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, Education, Culture and Sports Minister Iñigo Mendez de Vigo, Madrid regional government head Cristina Cifuentes, Madrid Mayor Manuela Carmena and BBVA CEO Francisco Gonzalez, also attended the opening.

The exhibition, which includes more than 50 paintings, is being sponsored by BBVA.

“The Garden of Earthly Delights” and “The Haywain Triptych” are among the works on display in the Prado’s Bosch exhibition.

“This is the star of the exhibition,” Queen Letizia told Princess Beatrix in English, referring to “The Garden of Earthly Delights.”

The painting is possibly Bosch’s best known triptych and has been housed at the Prado since 1939.

Hieronymus Bosch (1450-1516), who painted during the Northern Renaissance Period, is known for detailed works that featured vivid imagery, especially ghastly depictions of hell.

Bosch has influenced numerous artists, including Spanish master Salvador Dali (1904-1989).

The exhibition, which opens to the public on Tuesday, runs until Sept. 11.
