The painter named himself after the place he came from. He was born as Jheronimus van Aken. It's great to have the works back in the place where Bosch made them!
's-Hertogenbosch, as the city is officially known, is about 20 minutes by train for me. It's a beautiful old town that got rich in the late Middle Ages over wood-trade with the Swedes. The abundance of water made it an easy town to defend.

My wife and I are planning on moving to Europe eventually and we will definitely be visiting the Netherlands again.



Have the courage of your convictions.

Aqua, you're in luck: the Bosch exhibition is lengthened again!
I have to stress - this is an awesome exhibition. In spite of it being busy, you can get real close to the paintings, up to 30 cm.

(try a couple of times until the tickets are on sale again)

I wish I could go, that would be great, but I've got other plans for that period of time. Thank you anyway, Bonny.

Pity... it was such an amazing exhibition!
The Ship Of Fools is in the Louvre. It was once part of a triptych: the panel was detached from the back and then sown in two, the bottom of the ended up in Yale's art gallery in New Haven - it's known as Gluttony and Lust. At the other end of the Ship of Fools would have been one half of the Wayfarer, which is in Rotterdam. The back of the other half of the Wayfarer was Death And The Miser. Four places, three countries, two continents, one triptych.
Now they're all in one section of the room, the parts of the Ship of Fools reunited, with informative screens showing how the triptych would've looked, showing details and showing the infrared photography, which shows how Bosch worked and what changes he made.

Here's the website of the Bosch Research Project, for a good time:

That must have been an awesome exhibition... I'll have to go see The Ship Of Fools when it's come back to the Louvre, I haven't been there for a long time. It must be great to see all the different parts all gathered together in one room!

Thanks for the link, Bonny.

If you're going to the Louvre for just one painting: remember there's another part of the Louvre in Lens now. When we went to the Louvre my sister wanted to see Liberty guiding the People, but that turned out to be in Lens. I'm not sure where they put the Ship of Fools when it comes back (and IIRC it may spend some months at the Prado).

Thailand? Is that something you've wanted to do for a while, or have you been there before? I've not been myself but I've noticed it's very popular with a lot of Aussies living there on the cheap apparently.

In this region of the world Thailand's known for its loose attitude towards sexual criminality - it's the holiday destination of pedophiles.


Aaaaanyway... Great Aqua, hope you'll get to see elephants!

It's one of the countries I've wanted to go to for a long time, with Brazil, canada and Egypt. I intended to go to Mauritius or the Seychelles, in the first place, but I couldn't get what i wanted for a reasonable price, so I thought why not go to Thailand? It's beautiful, people are nice, etc, etc...
