Hell

Ask anything

  • Adam asked

    Hello! I am writing about this work and it would help me a lot to know whether the Hell (aka "Fire Next Time") panel is still displayed on the left, or has the museum swapped it to the right to match the (very recent) research findings of the Bosch Project that suggest it was perhaps the other way around?

    Thanks!

  • Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen answered

    Dear Adam,
    ‘The Hell’ is still displayed on the left in Musuem Boijmans Van Beuningen. However, thank you for sharing this interesting information with us.
    Kind regards,
    Jephta

More information

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.
