    Hieronymus Bosch: Touched by the Devil

    As eerie and spooky as Bosch’s works are, almost nothing is known of his life, and only 25 of his confirmed paintings and a handful of his known drawings exist, housed in art galleries across the globe. Hieronymus Bosch, Touched by the Devil follows a team of curators and art experts from Rotterdam’s Museum Boijmans van Beuningen as they attempt to bring together all of Bosch’s works to celebrate the 500th anniversary of his death.

The first film played the long joke of Po, a panda, thinking Mr. Ping, a goose, was his biological father, and the second film used the revelation of Po’s heritage as its emotional…
