Join Rima Girnius, Associate Curator, European Painting and Sculpture, as she discusses the importance and popularity of Hieronymus Bosch. She will also share the once-in-a-lifetime story about how a team of researchers determined that The Temptation of St. Anthony, a painting then in Nelson-Atkins storage, was an authentic and rare work by the 16th-century master.
Immediately following the talk, enjoy a screening of the 2016 film Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil. The documentary follows the Dutch art historians who researched and authenticated Bosch’s works ahead of exhibitions celebrating the 500th anniversary of the master’s birth at the Noordebrandts Museum in Den Bosch, Netherlands, and the Prado in Madrid, Spain.
Offered in connection with the exhibition What Lies Beneath: Rediscovering Hieronymus Bosch and Albrecht Bouts.
