In 2016, the 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch was celebrated with a major exhibition in his home town, Den Bosch in the Netherlands. The city of Den Bosch does not possess a single painting by Hieronymus Bosch, all of the work shown in the Visions of Genius exhibition was on global loans from Madrid, Venice, and The United States. Of the 25 surviving works ascribed to Bosch and his workshop, The Garden of Earthly Delights was not on loan, as it was deemed too fragile to travel by the Prado Museum.
