The inventory that was drawn up after the death of the Antwerp citizen Margaretha Boghe (2 November 1574 and 21 January 1575) mentions a painting that is attributed to Bosch: Een tafereel van Jeronymus Bosch, wesende van de VII dootsonden [a scene by Jeronymus Bosch, representing the VII Deadly Sins]. It is unknown to which painting this refers and whether it can be attributed to Bosch (or to his workshop). Margaretha Boghe was the widow of Joris Vezelaer, a goldsmith and tradesman, and this Joris was a son of the ’s-Hertogenbosch goldsmith Jacob Janszoon Vezelaer (died around 1498) who was an external member of the ’s-Hertogenbosch Confraternity of Our Lady. Jacob may have commissioned the painting mentioned in 1574-75 from Bosch, but this is highly uncertain.

 

This article does not offer any Bosch-related data that are not known from earlier books and articles.
