The seven deadly sins: Pieter Bruegel versus Gurt Swanenberg

The exhibition of Pieter Bruegel the Elder (ca. 1526-1569), or the ‘second Bosch’, will be showing the complete series and seldom seen prints of Pieter Bruegel of the seven deadly sins and the seven virtues, in combination with a contemporary interpretation of the deadly sins by Gurt Swanenberg.

Drawings by Thé Tjong-Khing

The illustrator, Thé Tjong-Khing (Purworedjo, 1933) also immersed himself in Bosch’s world. The original drawings from his children’s book ‘Hieronymus. An adventure in the world of Hieronymus Bosch’, which he created for the 500th anniversary in 2016 of Hieronymus Bosch’ death will be shown in this exhibition.

New version of lost tapestry by Jan Fabre after Bosch
