It´s called The Garden Of Earthly Delights(the right outer wing) and that part is called "Hell" there is also "Paradise" and the creation of the earth and all that.

I´m sure you also knew that before but just don´t want to agree with me for the sake of it.emoticon

And if I´d show you my sources you´d of course say that those people don´t know what they are talking about! emoticon

And of course you´re also an art history expert.

I learnt in Art school that this part of the tryptic represents Hell and is called "the hell of the musician" (which seems to be obvious), at least in French, maybe different langages and cultures call it slightly differently, but it sure is Hell.
The other two parts of the tryptic are Heaven and Earth

I did take art history and happen to be a decent artist,the courses were painstakingly boring though.
I have a book which happens to title the Bosch painting as:
"The Realm Of Mental Illness"

I don´t know, maybe they just use an abbreviation in my book. There stands: right wing: Hell; left wing: Paradise(or Garden Of Eden); right and left outer wings each show the creation of earch and in the middle there is The Garden Of Earthly Delights.

The album cover of Deep Purple is a gatefold and shows the down part on the front and when you fold it out the upper part on top or back(whatever you do.emoticon)
M.C.Escher did a copy of the upper part in from of a drawing(ie in b/w) and if he also did the down part it the album cover could very well be the copy(because it looks a lot more like that one)?! emoticon

I almost think I know what you probably think about(could be wrong though), but I belive you mix it up with something looking very similar.

I have heard that title before but not for the right wing of the Garden Of Earthly Delights(obviously known as the hell for the musician).

For those who are curious about what it is. This is the entire thing(except the outer wings, which can´t be seen if it´s in that position).

Two years ago I was at the "Alte Pinaothek" in munich where many images of Bosh are exhibited. That one is exhibited in Madrid, though.

He is definetly one of my favorite artists emoticon
One things for sure, many paintings go by different titles,in reference to what the actual title of the Bosch painting is,I'm sure your right and probably know more about it than me.
I never cared much for it and many paintings of this nature,TROMI could be some sort of paraphrase anyway.

At least it sure ain´t the title that it was given.

It´s probably a paraphrase as you say. Type "Bosh Hell" into Google and you get the picture we´re talking about. TRMOI won´t give you results in that context(but there´s obviously a book with that title.emoticon)

M.C. Escher is good. In the art classes at school I copied "Ascending and Descending"(the step that goes up but also remains on the same level). Don´t think I kept it though.

Thats the title of the book I have,I'll have to dig it out,maybe I thought it as the title of the painting because it's shown in the book,I guess that must be it,it was 25 years ago or so when I was given the book by who I can't quite recall,but I took an instant notice to the painting for obvious reason,the Purple connection.

Didn't Escher die in 1972?
