“The diabolical visions of Bosch remain beguiling and more popular than ever.”—Tom Rachman, New York Times

To mark the 500th birthday of painter Hieronymus Bosch in 2016, art historians from the Noodrbrandants Museum in the Dutch city of Den Bosch—hometown of the artist—are planning a major exhibition of his work. To prepare for the show, they must reveal the mystery of the twenty-five still-remaining Bosch paintings—from depictions of the horrors of hell to the devil that consumed the artist’s thoughts and dreams.

Armed with forensic tools—such as x-rays, infrared photography, and multi-spectrum analysis—the historians penetrate the layers of the painting to discover the artist’s intentions. Not every institution is forthcoming with access given the rarity of the work housed at The Louvre, The Prado, and the National Gallery of Art in Washington—each is protective of the treasures. 2015; The Netherlands; DCP; in Dutch, English, Spanish, and Italian with English subtitles, 87 minutes. Not rated, suggested for 13+
