|Spirit maze. Bosch and art collection in Venice in the early 1500s|
|Written by M.M.|
A fascinating and mysterious artist, Hieronymus Bosch waits for you in Venice. Three very important pieces of his – two triptychs and four tables - are part of the Palazzo Grimani and Palazzo Ducale collections. They are now on show in a single exhibition about the origins and genesis of the art and the impact it had on Italian art. Marcantonio Michiel (Venice, 1484–1552), a literate and collector, lists three pieces by Bosch in the collection of Cardinal Domenico Grimani, sporting images of monsters, fires, and dreams. Those are what excited Venetian, and northern Italians in general, collectors of the time and what still fascinates us today.
