Joaquín Sorolla (1863–1923) was known as the ‘master of light’ but the Spanish Impressionist is a largely forgotten figure in the art world compared to heavyweights such as Monet, Van Gogh and Renoir.
From beaches, gardens and landscapes to social themes and family portraits, there’s sun-drenched scenes and depictions of Spanish life in this, the first exhibition of his work here.
Consider this the artistic equivalent of getting a visual dose of Vitamin D, some balm for the soul.
