Hieronymus Bosch is one of the most original Flemish painters. His imagery, the animals, fantastic beings and structures and symbolic elements that appear in his works, especially the one we represent, make us think of a kind of precursor of 20th century surrealism. Many of El Bosco’s works have a satirical and moralising tone, such as The Hay Wain or The Extraction of the Stone of Madness. El Bosco was particularly appreciated by Philip II of Spain, who acquired several of his works, including the Triptych of The Garden of Delights.
The closed triptych represents the creation of the world on the outside, in greyish tones, in contrast to the colourful interior.
The interior triptych is made up of three parts: on the left hand side is the Garden of Eden, with the presentation of Eve to Adam by God.
The central panel is the Garden of Delights itself, populated by numerous human figures, animals and fruits of disproportionate sizes and strange structures such as bubbles and fantastic constructions, which would represent the fall of human beings into sin.
The panel on the right is Hell, again with elements of overflowing imagination, reflecting the capital sins and the punishment of sinners who are devoured by the devil, with the head of a bird.
This work is one of the most original and symbolic in the History of Art.
