Ilsa (from "Dead Issue").
|Died||1502-03, 's-Hertogenbosch (suicide by poison)|
|Portrayed By||Natalie Radford|
Ilsa served as a model for the Early Dutch painter, Hieronymous Bosch. In 1502 or 1503, Nicholas de Brabant served as a model with Ilsa for Bosch while he was painting his famous triptych, The Garden of Earthly Delights. Ilsa confided to Nicholas that Bosch had raped her - she blamed herself for using her feminine wiles to arouse his lust. Nicholas assured her that the fault was that of Bosch; but she poisoned herself.
