Hieronymus Bosch is a well-known classical painter popularized by his iconic works such as the Garden of Earthy Delights. The work known for enticing the viewer with its whimsical and surrealist style can now fully immerse the viewer thanks to the Bosch VR experience available for download onto Android or iPhone devices.

The Bosch VR app is a curated simulated reality that takes viewers both young and old through the mind of Bosch and his paintings to better understand the world the artist created. The Garden of Earthy Delights leaves much up to the interpretation to the viewer as to what the symbols and metaphors mean, and the Bosch VR further facilitates the viewer's ability to unpack the painting with an immersive experience. Viewers will see the painting brought to life through animations coupled with historical information and facts.
