The depiction of buildings in paintings was one of the options used by artists to emphasise the scenes and episodes depicted in their compositions. These architectural backgrounds constitute the guiding thread of the exhibition, which spans the 14th to the 18th centuries. It will focus on general issues that will reveal to the visitor the evolution of these decorative backgrounds, as well as offering a detailed and wideranging analysis of the various issues that contributed to the creation of an independent genre from the 17th century onwards.
