Focus on Bosch Lecture and illustration workshop with Marcel Ruijters

18:30 - 20:45

Workshop inspired by Hieronymus Bosch

Imagine actually being in Hieronymous Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights in the Van Abbemuseum in 2016. Bosch’s work will be brought to life by stimulating all your senses in a series of special activities throughout the year. Feel, smell, see, taste and hear how the artist from Den Bosch can continue to inspire you even today.  

On 10 March the illustrator Marcel Ruijters will give a lecture on his graphic novel Jheronimus, followed by an illustration workshop.
In his graphic novel Hieronymous Bosch (ca. 1450-1516) is the subject. Marcel Ruijters brings the late Middle Ages to life on a grand scale in his comic strip. We follow the life of Hieronymous Bosch and see how the works which often appear bizarre to our eyes had a place during this fascinating period and were part of Bosch’s world.

Marcel Ruijters gave free rein to his imagination when he looked at Bosch’s life and times, but he did not undermine the facts known about him. In combination with his infectious humor this has resulted in an irresistible cocktail. No comic strip enthusiast, art lover or admirer of Hieronymous Bosch should miss it.
De Volkskrant gave Jheronimus four stars: "The robust, woodcut-like style of Marcel Ruijters’ illustrations is perfectly suited to bringing 15th-century scenes to life.”

Marcel takes you on his journey into the middle ages and Boschs take on life and reality. Try to see like Bosch, use your imagination and bring new creatures to life!
