Jheronimus Bosch Art Center

(5th Conference) Jheronimus Bosch, His workshop, and His Followers

5th International Jheronimus Bosch Conference
May 11-13, 2023

Jheronimus Bosch remains an exceptionally popular painter and draughtsman. His death(in 1516) was commemorated five years ago with major exhibitions in ’s-Hertogenbosch and in Madrid, which together drew well over one million visitors, an astonishing success. The scholarly interest in the master from ’s-Hertogenbosch has often focused on the often-peculiar iconography of some of his works, which historians of art have tried to explain and decipher since the late 19th century. Ever since the literature on Bosch has grown exponentially, and that is still the case today. For any serious discussion of these paintings and drawings, whether focused on iconography, Bosch’s patrons, or his socioeconomic position in his hometown of ’s-Hertogenbosch, the precise definition of the boundaries of the oeuvre and the creation of a reliable chronology of these works remains a critically important foundation.

The conference Defining boundaries: Jheronimus Bosch, his workshop, and his followers was supported by the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center, the City of ’s Hertogenbosch, Het
huis van Bosch, and Radboud University Nijmegen. Conference Committee: Prof.dr Ron Spronk (chair), prof.dr Jos Koldeweij, and dr Eric De Bruyn. Defining boundaries:
Jheronimus Bosch, his workshop, and his followers (2023) was the fifth international conference organized at the Jheronimus Bosch Art Center (JBAC), after Jheronimus Bosch
Revealed: The Painter and His World (2001); Jheronimus Bosch: His Sources (2007); Jheronimus Bosch: His Patrons and His Public (2012) and Jheronimus Bosch: His Life and His Work (2016).
