Mythological Passions: Tiziano, Veronese, Allori, Rubens, Ribera, Poussin, Van Dyck, Velázquez
Mythological Passions is a unique exhibition that brings together the extraordinary group of works by Titian on mythological themes commissioned by Philip II –Poesies-, accompanied by a superb selection of paintings by Allori, Rubens, Veronese, Velázquez, Poussin, etc.
Under this open title there is room for paintings with very diverse motifs and treatments and, for this reason, it was decided to use for the main typographic use a letter design based on one of the reinterpretations of Roman letters that were common at the beginning of the 20th century, the one made by Ehmcke: the aim was to obtain balance and a slight solemnity.
The incorporation of the selection took place during the graphic design process. Thus, this frieze of celebrities becomes a key part of the name of the exhibition, as a basic ingredient of its claim.
The exhibition graphics use for the room texts and posters a font of comfortable legibility and good performance, with a contained design, characteristics that are tested on the backgrounds of intense and complementary colors of the walls of the rooms.
