The Artist called «the painter of Light», was a passionate admirer of women, something very latent in his work, And that is why the Sorolla Museum presents the Exhibition «Sorolla. Femenine Plural», where special attention is paid to the female figure (without taking into account the women of her family) from its beginnings to its most consecrated period.
The great variety of women that the artist painted is reflected in the 36 selected works, divided into 4 sections: «Fisherwomen and mothers», «Women of the people», «History, mythology and other pretexts» and «Elegant and modern». For Joaquin any woman could be interesting to be painted, regardless of her social status, what really interested her was her beauty and that they reflected some of her favorite qualities, such as strength and character, let’s have a lot of personality.
Many come from private collections, so they will be a delight for any admirer of the Valencian artist, as they are very little known.
You can feed on how the artist of greatest international projection of his time, represented the female sex from his admiration for them.
For us Sorolla in a basic need food…don’t miss it!
