The most universal Valencian painter, Joaquín Sorolla and other 19th and 20th-century artists important to his work (Pinazo, José and Mariano Benlliure, Muñoz Degraín, Antonio Fillol and Cecilio Pla) all feature in a new exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Valencia, which opened on 12 March.

The beginning of modern painting in Spain: Joaquín Sorolla” is a new perspective on Sorolla and marks the opening of the Museum’s newly renovated rooms following the latest remodelling. This is a brand new exhibition area that has been closed to the public for the past four years.

The exhibition’s chosen emblem is “Marina”, a painting dating back to 1907 and depicting an everyday scene of two fishermen pulling a boat up onto the beach. This is the prelude to another seven seasonal exhibitions coming to the Valencian art gallery in 2019. Of particular note, arriving from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, is the predella from the gothic Altarpiece of St George by the “Master of the Centenar”.

Come and enjoy Valencia’s art!
