Earlier this year I was fascinated by the Bosch Parade that is held annually in June.

I used to like his drills and hand tools, but I find that Chinese copies are so much better value.

The Prado has a small permanent exhibition that fascinated me and currently a larger exhibition until October (I think).

We also have one of his washing machines.

We went to the exhibit there at the end of April. Fascinating exhibit and a really lovely town.

The exhibit at the Prado ends in September. After we booked our flights, we realized that we have one afternoon to see the exhibit. SO after a transatlantic flight we will drag our butts over to see it. We have timed tickets. That is if our flights are on time.

Yes, there are Bosches which are part of the permanent collection at the Prado. the Spanish took them when the ruled Holland in the 16th century.
