FBA was responsible for the visual identity, promotional materials, exhibition catalogue and collateral design of this exhibition.

Through almost sixty paintings from the Prado Museum collection, this exhibition presented a journey through 17th century landscape painting in the Flanders and the Netherlands. Mountains, woodlands, seascapes, exotic lands, peasant daily life scenes or palatial gardens, icy northern landscapes or southern light were the themes of this exhibition, which included some masterpieces by great artists of Nordic painting.

This was the first presentation f the great Spanish Museum in Portugal, in a clear monumental illustration of its rich collection, but also a historical landmark in the cultural approach between Portugal and Spain.

Created in 1884, the MNAA-Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga is the home of the most important Portuguese public collection of art, ranging from paintings to sculpture, and gold and silverware, as well as decorative arts from Europe, Africa and the Far East. Comprising over 40,000 items, the MNAA collection has the largest number of works classified by the State as “national treasures”. In its various sections, it also has a number of major works of art in the context of the world artistic heritage.
