Exhibition of paintings by Sorolla
Sorolla Painter – Seville Exhibition
One of the greatest references in the history of art in Spain arrives at the Episcopal Palace of Malaga on 21 October. The Unicaja Foundation premieres in front of the palace with the works of painter Joaquin Sorolla and the exhibition “Sorolla inland”.
Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida [1863-1923] was a Valencian painter who left a legacy of more than 2200 works throughout his life.

An exhibition that comes from the city of Seville and has received more than 25,000 visits since its opening last June. Seville had a total of 61 works by the painter Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida, from the collections of the Sorolla Museum and the Sorolla Museum Foundation.
There is no doubt that this exhibition is a journey through Spain by the hand of the painter Sorolla, showing a great modernity in some of his works, such as the vineyards of Jerez, resorting only to light, color and abstraction.
Among the works that were presented in Seville was the reproduction of a portrait of Antonio Machado made by the painter Sorolla for the gallery of the Hispanic Society of New York.

In Seville the exhibition began with a journey through the sea and inland, with a total of 61 works. In Malaga, the works of the painter Sorolla number 111. In the city of Malaga you can see a group of ten large-format works called “Tipos Populares” (Popular Types), a tour of Spain where Sorolla made sketches for the Hispanic Society of New York, whose original name was “Visión de España” (Vision of Spain).
Malaga will also have an exhibition of small-format works called “Colour Notes”, in which the painter Sorolla exemplifies his mastery of colour and light techniques.
One of the most positive aspects of the exhibition is its large diverse audience “from families to groups of elderly, groups of friends or people with disabilities, as well as visitors from different parts of the national scene and even abroad,” say Unicaja Foundation.
