We do not need to be especially sensitive to become amazed behind any of Jheronimus van Aken´s masterpieces, even today 500 years after his death. In a time apparently opposite to his, we can discover in his pictures timeless vices, attitudes or concerns which have become for generations the seed of future dreams and fantasies of those who paid attention to them. In the depth of his masterpieces, the message is still alive. Gutemberg´s first printer started to produce the first illustrated books at the same time he was growing, and lots of his models were part of those images lighting up the Bible and the pious books arriving to Hertogenbosch. The master´s studio has not stopped awarding degree to disciples since he died. This exhibition shown on his 500 anniversary is an attempt to compile the dreams and fantasies of 12 contemporaneous creators of images that, at any time have become inspired by Van Aken´s pieces. 12 Spanish illustrators well recognized national and internationally that use their own language to communicate messages to the world they live in, on the same way as “Bosch” did More than 20 hand-made pieces created by these authors to spread the seed of curiosity, fear, laugh, or outrage in the minds of those who stop to stare at them.
