Born in Valencia, Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923) excelled as a portrait and landscape painter. While he also depicted grand historical subjects, he is most closely associated with monumental paintings of the beaches of Valencia. This exhibition will highlight Sorolla’s skill in the depiction of water and light, a quality that recurs throughout his work, and demonstrate the influence on his work of, among others, Velázquez and Bastien-Lepage, and his friend John Singer Sargent.
