Bolduque (‘s-Hertogenbosch, in Dutch) was very significant from an administrative point of view during the reign of Charles V. It even went on to give its name to “balduque”, the red tape used to wrap official administrative texts, even to this day. But the city also played an artistic role. It was the birthplace of El Bosco: the painter’s particular style and his artistic excellence were another link between Spain and The Netherlands during the 15th and 16th centuries. His ‘Jardín de las Delicias’ continues to be one of the most loved paintings by visitors to the Prado Museum.
