Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light
18 March – 7 July 2019, Location: Sainsbury Wing, The National Gallery, London.
The first UK exhibition of Spain's Impressionist, Sorolla, in over a century.
Known as the 'master of light' for his iridescent canvases, this is a rare opportunity to see the most complete exhibition of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida's (1863–1923) paintings outside Spain.
From the vivid seascapes, garden views, and bather scenes for which he is most renowned, to portraits, landscapes and genre scenes of Spanish life, the exhibition features 58 works spanning Sorolla's career – many of which are travelling from private collections and from afar.
Exhibition organised by the National Gallery and the National Gallery of Ireland, in collaboration with Museo Sorolla.
