These two panels are the wings of a triptych, the central panel of which has probably been lost. The left-hand panel shows a burning city and swarms with devilish figures. The right-hand panel depicts the stranding of Noah's Ark. Noah and his family can be seen on deck while the pairs of animals disembark through a hatch into the desolation following the flood.
Jacob Romanow asked
Hello, I'm wondering if Bosch's panels Hell and The Flood are currently on exhibit at the museum, as it's not indicated in the usual place on the website. Thank you!
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered
Dear Jacob, no unfortunately these panels are currently not on view, because we're preparing for the upcoming renovation and therefore part of the building is not accessible to the public at the moment. For our exhibitions on view until 26 May, please check our website. Best, Rianne
