Philip of Burgundy was the youngest bastard son of the Burgundian duke Philip the Good. From 1516 until his death in 1524, he was Bishop of Utrecht. According to an inventory of his possessions dating from 1529, Philip owned a comical representation on canvas attributed to Jheronimus Bosch and a painting which is described as ‘a scene of Lubbertas who is being cut from the stone’. This latter work is more than likely Bosch’s Cutting of the Stone panel (today in the Prado), and probably Philip was its commissioner. Philip of Burgundy belonged to the higher circles centering around duke Philip the Fair, and he was befriended with Henry III of Nassau, once the owner and perhaps also the commissioner of Bosch’s Garden of Delights triptych. With Henry III Philip shared an interest in paintings with enigmatic subjects and with nude figures.
