Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil by Pieter van Huystee (Netherlands, 2015, 86 min.).
2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronimus Bosch (1460 - 1516), one of the most celebrated painters of all time. Known worldwide for his fantastic imagery of heaven and hell, Bosch is having a bit of a revival these days; there are major exhibitions planned in Holland, Venice and Madrid, and in February 2016 it was announced that a new Bosch painting was discovered in the United States. This film follows a team of Bosch experts over four years as they travel the world to examine all of the known Bosch paintings with high-res macro, x-ray and infrared cameras. For the first time, viewers can see behind the varnish – penetrating the paintings to reveal his unseen creative process.
This screening has been moved to the Remis Auditorium.
