The theme of this exhibition was the artistic work of the portuguese King Fernando II (1816-1885). He was very dedicated to value the arts in general and he had an abundant personal artistic production, in the areas of drawing, engraving and decorative arts. The exhibition was installed in the Pena palace in Sintra, summer residence of the King, as an extra zone of the normal visit to the palace. The objective was to develop an installation that continued the romantic and intimate language of the palace. The intervention values the original space presenting an combination of furniture and color coherent with palace visual language. All the technical installations are hidden. The exhibition presents drawings, engravings an objects mounted in wall frames and showcases, all designed specially for the exhibition and inspired in the romantic language of the palace. The furniture design, the color and the graphic communication intend to create a very intimate mood, deeply connected to the king’s character. The exhibition catalog was designed like a personal notebook of the king, presenting its sketches.
