The exhibition was supported by more than 10,000 visitors during its first month of exhibition at the Unicaja Foundation Cultural Center in Malaga.
The sea, the beach and its landscapes, open their journey through the author’s native Valencia, where Sorolla shows a lot of light. In “Sorolla tierra adentro” the Valencian artist makes a masterful use of his light. A journey through the Spanish lands of Castile to the Cantabrian where he experiments with outdoor painting.
With “White Spain”, Sorolla discovers an Andalusia that he first flats in 1902. Here, Joaquín Sorolla sought the authenticity of the land, shaping the vineyards of Jerez de la Frontera, the gardens of Seville, and especially, in Granada.
Toledo and its Alcazar? Yes, with “Sorolla tierra adentro” you will be able to discover another of its great points of inspiration. The Valencian artist took as his inspiration many of Spain’s historic cities. He painted the walls of Ávila, the cathedral of Burgos or the castle of Medina del Campo.
Sorolla was undoubtedly a great Spanish painter who managed to show exhibitions in New York City in 1909. Thanks to this he achieved an unprecedented success, with works such as Sol de Tarde or Nadadores. He was also recognized at the Art Institute of Chicago.
