Second Canvas Museo del Prado – Bosch is created as part of the special programme organised by Museo del Prado to commemorate the death’s 5th centennial of Hyeronimus Bosch throughout 2016. This app allows you to explore in super-high resolution, with a high level of both detail and quality unnoticeable to the human eye directly, major masterpieces of the Flemish painter, such as The Haywain Triptych, The Adoration of the Magi, The Table of the Seven Deadly Sins and The Garden of Earthly Delights.
On this occasion, apart from the triptychs’ internal panels, the external have also been digitalised, showing a so far less-known part of Bosch’s oeuvres, making it possible to examine the doors’ couronnements and the scenes in them. All of the artwork includes an additional vision taken from IR-reflectography. In the case of The Garden of Earthly Delights X-rays can be used too. Both IR and X-rays allow us to discover hidden characters, changes in the final version and the artist’s pendimenti.
Discover, surf, learn, teach and share from your tablet or smartphone, with the possibility to connect it to your TV’s screen.
