2016 marks the 500th anniversary of the death of Dutch master Hieronymus Bosch. Whether you know it or not, his wildly bizarre imaginings of hell are permanently etched upon your psyche. Pieter van Huystee tracks down his 25 or so surviving paintings, recording the meticulous work of archivists as well as snarky jousting by Dutch and Spanish curators over granting access to the masterpieces. Tantalizing, repulsive, hilarious, and sexually perverse: his hell is our hell, even after 500 years.
