The popularity around his work would continue right up to the present day, many centuries later.
This website covers the full career of Bosch and presents images of his best known paintings.
The Garden of Earthly Delights is certainly Bosch's most respected art work and you can see that included within this website.
It was a highly detailed landscape triptych which can now be found in El Prado Museum.
This tripych is separated into three different paintings for each of the three sections, covering Adam and Eve on the left, earthly delights in the middle and hell to the right
Bosch paintings attracted interest from right across the country and abroad in neighbouring areas with the artist receiving many impressive commissions as his reputation grew stronger and stronger.
Bosch used a style somewhat different to the normal Flemish style which was used at that time and this helped him to stand out from others who were simply following on from what had gone before.
Changing tastes across Europe in the centuries which have passed since the career of Bosch means that his popularity has fluctuated, but currently he is seen as separate to the Dutch Golden Age because of his period of prominence but his importance to the art world is almost on a par with their greatest components.
The best to have come from the Dutch Golden Age included Vermeer and Jan Steen.
Hieronymus Bosch had a style which many found unusual because of the way that he would create strange and wonderful fantasies whilst other artists of this time preferred to concentrate on what they considered reality.
Many found the images within his paintings to be gruesome and not easy on the eye, but despite this Bosch still managed to achieve considerable success within his career.
There has been certain amounts of controversy over the attribution of paintings to Bosch because in part to the great amount of time that has passed by since his work came about.
Bosch also rarely signed any paintings which has further complicated the matter and currently there are only around 25 paintings definitely confirmed as being from his own studio, and that comes from a career which lasted 30 to 40 years, meaning many more must be out there somewhere.
Temptation of St Anthony
Philip II of Spain was known to be the biggest fan of Bosch going and passionately bought up as many of his paintings as he could.
This may explain why so many of this artist's work now reside within major art museums and galleries of Spain, with all the artist's roots of course being across in an area now referred to as the Netherlands.
Bosch used many moral and spiritual messages within his paintings and this is part of the reason that his career is now much loved as some are not as keen on the actual technical abilities that he had, with some critics arguing that his style was overly aggressive, even barbaric.
Bosch prints and posters are still very popular in the modern era, with this artist's reputation well suited to current tastes making their way around the European art world.
Hieronymus Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights is the most frequently reproduced of all his painting and typically his followers choose framed giclee art prints as they best match his original colour schemes and also a good frame is important for paintings of these styles.
