This month’s lecture is entitled, Sorolla: Setting the Mediterranean Alight.
In his lifetime, Sorolla was considered the most famous artist to come from Spain.
More Spanish than the Alhambra, more passionate than Flamenco, sunnier than a holiday in Marbella, he captured in his paintings all the exuberance of his native country.
So why don’t we know more about him?
This talk will explore the so-called Spanish ‘Master of Light’, from his paintings of sunlit beaches and gardens to scenes of fishermen and rural life, as well as portraits of the love of his life, his wife Clotilde.
