Joaquin Sorolla Exhibit in Italy and Spain

Sorolla Giardini di luce

Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida
Ferrara Palazzo dei Diamanti
Giardini di Luce
17th March - 17th June

A valencian Painter. Sorolla excelled in the painting of portraits and landscapes and monumental works of social and historical themes. His most typical works are characterized by a dexterous representation of the people and landscape under the sunlight of his native land, Spain.

One of my very favorite Painters.
The light is pure magic.
I can gaze at these huge paiting for hours, I feel the energy and the sun lights
directly on my face.

Joaquín Sorolla was born on 27 February 1863 in Valencia, Spain

Early in 1911, Sorolla visited the United States for a second time, and exhibited 161 new paintings at the Art Institute of Chicago. Later that year Sorolla met Archer M. Huntington in Paris and signed a contract to paint a series of oils on life in Spain. The canvases, to be installed in the Hispanic Society of America, would range from 12 to 14 feet in height, and total 227 feet in length. There would be fourteen large panels in all. The major commission of his career, it would dominate the later years of Sorolla's life.

After his death, Sorolla's widow, Clotilde García del Castillo, left many of his paintings to the Spanish public. The paintings eventually formed the collection that is now known as the Museo Sorolla which was the artist's house in Madrid. The museum opened in 1932.
Sorolla's work is represented in museums throughout Spain, Europe, and America, and in many private collections in Europe and America. In 1933, J. Paul Getty purchased ten Impressionist beach scenes done by Sorolla, several of which are now housed in the J. Paul Getty Museum
In 2007, many of his works were exhibited at the Petit Palais in Paris France alongside those of John Singer Sargent a contemporary who painted in a similar style. In 2009, there was a special exhibition of his works at the Prado in Madrid. In 2010, an exhibition at the Oscar Niemeyer Museum in Curitiba Brazil
From December 5th, 2011 to March 10th, 2012, several of Sorolla's works will be displayed in Queen Sofía Spanish Institute, located in New York, New York. This exhibition includes pieces used during Sorolla's eight year research for The Vision of Spain.
