Biography

Hieronymus Bosch (actually Jheronimus van Aken ; * about 1450 in 's-Hertogenbosch; † August 1516 ebenda) was a Dutch Renaissance painter. His work eludes a simple interpretation: while there are some plausible interpretations of his works, many representations remain mysterious. Bosch himself left no written records of his works.
