This is the first monographic exhibition organised in Spain about this pictorial genre of the 17th century Dutch School. The Temporary Exhibitions Gallery was specifically designed for this occasion, and its interior spaces were re-distributed in order to adapt them to the characteristics of the paintings and to the criteria of the exhibition. This was carried out following a clear chronological run through the twelve spaces destined for this ocasson, starting with the so-called transition artists between the 16th and the 17th century, to conclude with those masters whose work reveals the origin of new pictorial tendenceis.
