Another small panel from The Garden of Earthly Delights. It is the modern title given to a triptych painted by the Early Netherlandish master Hieronymus Bosch. It reveals the artist at the height of his powers; in no other painting does he achieve such complexity of meaning or such vivid imagery. Art historians and critics frequently interpret the painting as a didactic warning on the perils of life’s temptations.Twentieth-century art historians are divided as to whether the triptych’s central panel is a moral warning or a panorama of paradise lost. American writer Peter S. Beagle describes it as an “erotic derangement that turns us all into voyeurs, a place filled with the intoxicating air of perfect liberty”. The original image was painted in oils on Oak, circa 1490-1510.
