"Garden of Earthly Delights" by Hieronymus Bosch
Painted by the Netherlandish painter sometime around 1500 CE, the “Garden of Earthly Delights” is a triptych painted in oil on oak panels. When closed, the exteriors of the outer two panels join to form a grisaille image of the earth before creation. When opened, the three panels depict the Garden of Eden, the Garden of Earthly Delights, and Hell when read right to left. Scholars debate the exact meaning of the imagery of the painting, but Bosch was clearly letting his imagination run wild with details such as youthful nudes feasting on strawberries. Buona visione!
