Crowd at Jesus Trial - Hieronymus Bosch Trials Visual Arts World History Disasters

Hieronymus Bosch (c. 1450-1516) was a Dutch artist born in the town of 's-Hertogenbosch.  He is most-known for his paintings which vividly tell stories with imagery and color.

When Bosch was working in Den Bosch (as his hometown is known today), the city was part of the Duchy of Brabant.  That Duchy included parts of today’s The Netherlands and parts of today’s Belgium (including Brussels and Antwerp).

This image depicts his oil-and-gold-on-panel of “Ecce Homo” (where Pilate presents Jesus to a gathered crowd.  Art historians are not sure about the date of this work.

The original measures 52.1 x 54 cm (20.5 x 21.3 inches).  It is currently in Philadelphia where it is cared-for by the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
