An exhibition at the Doge’s Palace in Venice

Jeronimus Bosch an exhibition at the Doge’s Palace in Venice: Mystery and dreamlike visions. Jeronimus Bosch is a fascinating and enigmatic painter who lived between 1450 and 1516 in the Netherlands and is remembered on the occasion of the 500th anniversary of his death with two large monographic exhibitions in his hometown s-Hertogenbosch and at the Prado in Madrid.

Venice is the only city in Italy to preserve the works of this extraordinary artist. The works of Jeronimus Bosch in Venice will be exhibited in the halls 1 and 2 of the Doge’s apartment in the Doge’s Palace from February 18 to June 4, 2017.

Marcantonio Michiel, a connoisseur and art critic, describes in 1521 the reconstruction of the relationship between Bosch and Venice. A witness precocious where the collection of the “lagoon” of Cardinal Domenico Grimani, possessed an extraordinary number of northern European paintings, including works by Bosch with those three monsters, fire and dreamlike visions. After two years of the cardinal’s death these works were bequeathed to the Republic of Venice, along with other paintings and sculptures. In the basement the Doge’s Palace, were kept boxes full of artworks until 1615, when they were retrieved and displayed in the ducal residence.

The whole point of this exhibition is precisely the three great works of Bosch kept in the lagoon at the Accademia Gallery, two triptychs and four boards, reported to its former glory thanks to a major restoration campaign. In two of the three works preserved in Venice, the restorations carried out show how these works were initially intended to the Northern European commissions, changed later to adjust to a fine Italian customers, probably Domenico Grimani, 76th Doge of Venice.

These paintings, two triptychs and a set of four tables, form the core of the exhibition. Works autographed and documented in Venice in the Doge’s Palace since the seventeenth century. An exciting tour to appreciate an extraordinary immersive technology that is the confirmation of the highest pictorial quality of these artworks.
