Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil
Wednesday, September 28 | 7 pm | FREE
Katherine W. and Ezekiel R. Dumke Jr. Auditorium
Directed by Pieter van Huystee
87 min | 2016 | Netherlands | Not rated | English, Dutch, and Spanish with English subtitles    
In 2016 the Noordbrabants Museum in the Dutch city of Den Bosch held a special exhibition devoted to the work of Hieronymus Bosch who died 500 years ago. This late-medieval artist lived his entire life in the city, causing uproar with his fantastical and utterly unique paintings in which hell and the devil frequently play prominent roles. The film follows a team of Dutch art historians crisscrossing the globe to unravel the secrets of his art in preparation for the exhibition.

An exploration of painter Mark Rothko, best known for imposing canvasses that eschew representation to express fundamental human emotions through pure color. "He wanted the viewer to step into the painting. What he aimed for was not a consumption of art, but a dialogue. He thought that art could transform the public." —Annie Cohen-Solal, Mark Rothko biographer
