Bosch

Hieronymus Bosch

About 1450 Born as Jeroen van Aken in ’s Hertogenbosch in the central Netherlands.

1481 Marries Aleyt Goyarts van den Meervenne, whose dowry consisted of an estate near ’s Hertogenbosch and other property. It is probable that Bosch did not need to support himself by painting.

1486 or 7 Jeronimus van Aken enters the Brotherhood of Our Lady in ’s Hertogenbosch.

1488 Becomes a ‘sworn’ member of the Brotherhood, the only artist to be so honoured.

1488–90 Works on an altarpiece for the Brotherhood’s chapel in the Cathedral of St John.

1504 Philip the Fair, Duke of Burgundy, orders the Last Judgement altarpiece from Bosch.

1516 Dies in ‘s Hertogenbosch.
