    Free admission. Following the lecture, the Beyond Bosch exhibition will remain open until 8pm. Please enter the museums via the entrance on Broadway.

Sketching the path from Bosch to Pieter Bruegel the Elder (c. 1525–1569), Koerner will discover the birth of a painting of everyday life from the spirit of enmity.... Read more about Beyond Bosch?
