Sorolla in Jávea

Exhibition - Painting
Málaga

The Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga delves into the creative process of Joaquín Sorolla though a selection of paintings made during his stays on the Alicante coast.

Sorolla’s painting stands out for his detail of light and its reflection on the sea. The exhibition is a clear example and gives us an insight into how the coves and rocks of the Alicante coastline become common features in his paintings, along with his study of figures in the water and the colourful plays of light falling on the sea. The exhibition opens with the painting The Rocks at Jávea and the White Boat, painted by Sorolla in 1905 and an integral part of the museum’s permanent collection. Following it are thirty-something works and the artist’s preparatory sketches made during his stays in Jávea, all in this same year. The works are on loan from the Sorolla Museum and the Sorolla Museum Foundation in Madrid.
