Sorolla – Setting the Mediterranean Alight

In his lifetime, Sorolla was considered the most famous artist to come from Spain.

More Spanish than the Alhambra, more passionate than Flamenco, more sunny than a holiday in Marbella, he captured in his paintings all the exuberance of his native country.

So why don’t we know more about him?

This talk will explore the so-called Spanish ‘Master of Light’; from his paintings of sunlit beaches and gardens to scenes of fishermen and rural life, as well as portraits of the love of his life, his wife Clotilde.
