The Curious World of Hieronymus Bosch

22nd November 2017, 17:45 to 20:00, Lecture Room ER201, Elvet Riverside 2, New Elvet, Durham, DH1 3JT

Film screening
This film is from the 'Exhibition on Screen' series of documentaries from Seventh Art Productions. These focus on the work of individual artists based on major exhibitions of their work.

The artist Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450 - 1516) has been hailed as the greatest master of fantasy who ever lived. In 2016, the largest ever retrospective of Bosch's works was held in his home town of Den Bosch, bringing together 35 of his 44 surviving works. It was so popular that opening hours had to be extended to 1 a.m. to meet the demand. This film of the exhibition, with expert insights from curators and leading art experts, will allow viewers to appreciate the detail of Bosch's extraordinary paintings as never before, offering closeup views of the curiosities hidden within his brimming canvases, from cannibalistic clergymen to three-headed birds.

This event has been organised by the local committee of the Art Fund, the national charity which raises funds for museums and galleries. All proceeds will be given to the Art Fund.
