Upon hearing the name of Sorolla, it reminds us of the majesty of the Spanish beaches. We have been able to contemplate these paintings in Madrid, now they are in New York, but they have made a boat trip to Valencia.
These paintings will be traveling throughout the country until in September 2009, they return to Madrid, the paintings present us with images such as the Paseo de la Concha in San Sebastián, from Valencia, portraits of characters from Spain.
We will be able to see Sorolla's vision of Spain, in the cities of Seville, Malaga, Barcelona, Bilbao and Madrid, before making a last stop in Valencia, to return to New York.
Among Sorolla's paintings you will find two of the best works in her entire collection. Furnace of the Palm Grove, and the fishing of the tuna, made them in the last two years of life. Sorolla's line reached a degree of perfection and maturity with which she said goodbye to painting due to the ravages of hemiplegia that led to her death in 1923.
