The painting "Scenes of Creation" by Simon Bening is a masterpiece of Flemish art from the 16th century. This work represents the creation of the world according to the Bible, from the creation of light to the creation of man and woman.

Bening's artistic style is very detailed and meticulous, which can be seen in each of the characters and elements that make up the work. The composition is very balanced, with a clear hierarchy of the characters and a harmonious distribution of the elements.

Color is another outstanding aspect of this work. Bening uses a very rich and varied color palette, ranging from the softest and most delicate tones to the most intense and vibrant. The colors are combined in a harmonious and balanced way, creating a feeling of harmony and beauty.

The history of the painting is also very interesting. It was commissioned by Emperor Charles V for his private chapel in the Palacio de la Granja de San Ildefonso, in Segovia. The work was made in miniature on parchment, which demonstrates Bening's skill and skill as a miniaturist.
