The origins of Sorolla in the Museum of Fine Arts

Categories: exhibitions.

TOURISTIC AREA: Historical center

Paintings, watercolors, drawings and documents from the painter's least studied stage

Have you seen the special light of Valencia?

No artist has captured it better than Joaquín Sorolla.

The "Sorolla. Origins" exhibit spans from 1878 to 1884, just before his stay in Rome, when he was just 21 years old and received a scholarship thanks to his success in the wake of his work known as "The Cry of the Straw Salesman".

This exhibit has been produced in collaboration with the Sorolla Museum in Madrid and brings together paintings, watercolors, drawings, photographs and documents from a very little known and studied stage of this artist's career.

The works on display are on loan from different institutions such as the Diputación de Valencia, the Abelló Museum in Mollet del Vallés, the Montserrat Museum, the Diputación de Barcelona, the Fine Arts Museum of Murcia, the Diocese of Salamanca and the Prado Museum, as well as numerous private collections.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to enjoy some 70 works from the initial artistic period of this magnificent Valencian painter on the occasion of the first centenary of his death.
