“Sorolla. Traveling to paint“ is an original exhibition project aiming to bring the works of the famous master of light to the places where they were created. Promoted by the Sorolla Museum and the Sorolla Museum Foundation, it is part of the program of activities commemorating the centenary of the artist's death. It is certainly a well-deserved tribute to Joaquín Sorolla, the great Spanish plein-air painter and indefatigable traveller.
Through his paintings and landscapes, Sorolla acted as an artistic ambassador and defined an image of Spain that still lives on in the collective imagination. A modern and cosmopolitan painter, he was a tireless traveller who did not hesitate to go to the summer resorts of the bourgeoisie, to the different coasts bathed by his beloved Mediterranean Sea or to the rural areas of the interior, to be inspired by its beauty and diversity of colours and landscapes. With his particular view and depiction of Spain, he became the faithful chronicler of an era at the crossroads of the birth of the modern world. On the occasion of the Sorolla Centenary, under the title ”Sorolla. Traveling to paint“ encompasses a series of exhibitions that will take the works of the Valencian painter to those places where they were created. San Sebastián, Seville, Toledo, Mallorca or Valladolid are some of the cities holding exhibitions.
