"Sorolla to Rome": discover the works from the artist's initiation period
The works of the artist from his stage of growth and training come to Valencia
The memory of Sorolla is more alive than ever, with the artist having left a large number of works to admire.
In his first stage of training, he enjoyed help from the provincial government, which is how the master of light and color came to be trained in Rome, Florence, Naples and Assisi. Now, 33 pieces from his period of initiation are coming to the Salón del Respecte of the Palau de Scala in Plaza Manises in Valencia.
With the exhibit “Sorolla to Rome. The artist and the grant from the provincial government of Valencia (1884-1889)", you will gain insights into the painter's early challenges, the efforts of the provincial government to enforce the requirements of the grant, and Sorolla's first masterpieces.
All the original works and documents are owned by the provincial government, but you get to enjoy them every weekend and holiday until July 2 for free.
All roads may lead to Rome, but for Sorolla, it's obvious that this journey led him to the top as an artist.
Don't miss it!
