❤️ WHY WE LOVE IT ❤️

To commemorate the fifth century of the passing of Hieronymus Bosch, the Prado Museum commissioned this documentary about his undisputable masterpiece “The garden of Earthly Delights” from director José Luis López-Linares. The resulting work seeks to match the painting, in an attempt to uncover some of the multiple mysteries hidden in the canvas through a broad range of viewpoints, from an entertaining and educational perspective, while avoiding jargon and pedantry to reach all audiences. Both those who are familiar with “The Garden of Earthly Delights” and those who aren’t will be amazed by the amount of unsettling secrets that the film reveals.
