El Bosco..

Citizen of Den Bosch

The Netherlands and Spain share a historical past. Many works of Dutch painters therefore have ended in Spanish museums. This also happened to the works of the famous Den Bosch painter Jheronimus Bosch. No surprise that in Spain he is called El Bosco, which means Citizen of Den Bosch.
