2010

A catalogue, monograph and other accompanying materials of the largest collection of exhibitions on the works of Czech Baroque artist Karel Škréta. Held at the Prague Castle Riding School and the Waldstein Riding School, the exhibition had no logo: the graphic concept solely involved sections from paintings and minimalist Fedra Serif contemporary antique. The exhibition catalogue was bound in cloth with a dust jacket showing St Martin sharing his cloak with a beggar. Visitor numbers exceeded 70,000.
