A partnership with the Sorolla Museum, Madrid, this exhibition, curated by Carmen Pena, showcases 118 paintings by Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923) from the museum and from Spanish private collections.
The exhibition shows how Sorolla, the master of the "open air" and the "intense light", unveiled new versions of the various Spanish landscapes, at the turn of the 19th for the 20th century, giving them new meanings and participating in a cultural movement that sought another image of the country.
The selection of pieces also includes some paintings representing scenes on the seashore and the work of fishermen on the coasts of Valence, some of Sorolla’s most typical themes.
The exhibition is a great reason to (re)visit the Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga.
