Bosch's The Garden of Earthly Delights

  • Jones Gallery 1 Charlotte Street Saint John, NB, E2L 2H3 Canada (map)

We'll take a close look at Hieronymus Bosch’s famous triptych in this art history talk with gallery curator, Sarah Jones. 

Gambolling sinners engaging in orgiastic fantasies, strange and exotic animals, a hellish landscape with bewildering and nightmares figures. Oh boy. We’ll talk about the range of interpretations art historians have posited for this enigmatic work, and also more broadly about Bosch’s role in the Northern Renaissance.

Just a bit of garden-variety debauchery to get us through the winter.
Art history lectures at Jones Gallery are free and open to the public.
