An explosive discovery in the Bosche museum in the Netherlands will force the former Dutch king to re-examine his life and legacy.
Key points:The painting is believed to be a Bosch painting titled “Hell”Bosch was an art studio in the late 18th centuryThe painting depicts a woman who was stabbed to death with a crossbowThe painting has been removed from the museum and is in the private collection of the painter’s widowThe painting was originally exhibited in Amsterdam, where it has been on view since 1899.
But this week, an unknown vandal took the painting to the private museum in Zaanstraat in the Dutch town of Hoegeveen, where the painting is now in the collection of Bosch’s widow, Irene Bosch.
The painting will now go on display at the Boschy museum, which opened in 1903, and is currently the only museum in Europe dedicated to Boschs works.
Bosche was an influential Dutch artist who painted works that have become part of our national identity.
It was a time when people were trying to come to terms with a traumatic experience.
He painted images that were more than just a reflection of the time.
People would take away things like crosses and things that had been burned.
He was always very sensitive about the suffering of others.
He could paint that very strongly, very quickly.
In the Netherlands, he was regarded as a genius, but he also had a lot of painters like Jules Verne and Marcel Duchamp that he admired, and that was the legacy that was brought into the museum.
The painter’s wife Irene was a Bosche follower.
The wife of Bosche, Irenee Bosch, said she would have been happy to see the painting in the museum because she knew her husband would want to see it.
Irene said she was very happy to have it, but the painting was never part of the museum in Amsterdam and was in the possession of the artist’s widow.
It’s been in the family for 20 years and she was going to give it to the museum, she said.
I have always wanted it, she added.
The paintings are not being sold, but Irene said she had been told that the painting could be found.
Irene is one of many who have questioned the authenticity of the painting, which she said she believes to be an early version of a painting by Duchamps.
“It’s an important work, an important painting, that’s been there for 20 or 30 years and I think it’s important to have,” Irene told the ABC.
The museum said it would not comment on the painting’s provenance.
It is believed the painting may be the last piece of the works of art by the Bosches.
Irina said the painting had never been seen before, although the artist and the painting are well known.
“In this world we live in, there’s always something that’s hidden that is not known to the public,” she said, referring to the painting and its provenance to the Netherlands.
I am quite convinced that the artist who created this painting did this work and we can only hope that the paintings we see today were created by the artist,” she added, noting that the family had asked for the painting not to be displayed at the museum for fear it might be vandalised.”
We have the right to protect this painting.
