Spain's Master of Light
For the first time in Germany the Kunsthalle in Munich is presenting a comprehensive retrospective by the Spanish artist, Joaquín Sorolla (1863–1923). The exhibition includes 120 works from the artist’s entire career, from his early paintings in Paris, in which the influence of the French Impressionists is clearly evident, right through to the distinctive pictures that reflect the maturing of his art into his own unmistakable style that was celebrated throughout Europe and the USA. In addition to Spanish landscapes and beach scenes, perspective portraits are recurring themes in his work. Moreover, the exhibition focuses in particular on the large-format paintings that attracted such attention in the Paris Salon.
