At the fair

Jheronimus Bosch and the missus at the fair on the market square. (which is a triangle actually, in the city of Den Bosch) Here they take a peek at the side show. Bosch has painted a 'monster child' as a commmissioned work, which has gotten lost - it was a water colour painting on paper. It is because of descriptions in archives that we know it existed. And that there were freak shows at the time.
From my sketchbooks.
