Joaquín Sorolla received many accolades over his lifetime. The most important, though, was perhaps the turn of phrase used by Claude Monet, when he called the Spanish painter a “master of light.” And, in fact, Sorolla’s genre, portrait, and history paintings are flooded by an unparalleled, bright clarity and playful color schemes. He and his French admirer also devoted an entire cycle of works to the garden as such. What fascinated Monet in Giverny, Sorolla discovered in the grounds of the palaces of la Granja and the Alcazar in Seville, the Alhambra and the Generalife in Granada, and at his own home. Nuanced greens and façade elements form the background in front of which a colorful floral splendor is revealed. The feather-light application of paint continually allows Sorolla, as an Impressionist, to play with the abstract. Edited by Sorolla’s great-granddaughter, this is this first publication to feature the complete series.JOAQUÍN SOROLLA (1863–1923) is the chief figure of Spanish Impressionism.

Häufiges Motiv von Sorolla sind seine Frau und die Töchter in den Gärten. Gerne zeichnet er auch Brunnen. Ich bewundere den Detailreichtum mancher Bilder, z.B. Das Nähgen der Segel oder Palast La Granja, den man im Bild eigentlich nur in der ferne sieht. Bilder Hotel Sercotel Sorolla Palace - Offizielle Website ...
