This monograph on Joaquín Sorolla, written by Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the artist's great-granddaughter and the leading authority on his work, takes an in-depth look at the genius from Valencia. The seminal volume contains nearly three hundred illustrations of his most important Works.
Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923), represented by several pieces of outstanding quality in the permanent collection of the Museo Carmen Thyssen Málaga, developed a luminous style of plein-air painting early in his career that had much in common with Impressionism. Starting in 1900, he painted landscapes, urban views, seascapes and garden and beach scenes that demonstrated his special talent for capturing the effects of light.
Blanca Pons-Sorolla is an independent researcher specialised in the work of Joaquín Sorolla. An exhibition curator and author of numerous publications, she also serves as a trustee of Fundación Museo Sorolla and chairs its permanent council.
