A Special Taste of Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923)
A Centenary Celebration for Art@Home
Horse Bathing. 1909.
One of the most extraordinary Spanish artists from Valencia. Joaquin Sorolla died one hundred years ago, on 10th August 1923.
This lecture is to celebrate his life and his world, full of light and colour which delight the senses. Sometimes a social painter aware of the difficulties of his time, he was also concerned with capturing light falling on fishermen, the windy seascapes so redolent of the east coast of Spain and his beloved family.
In the last few years of his life, he travelled throughout Spain painting the regions and their customs, from bread festivals in Castile to Flamenco dancing in Seville.
The lecture will be 'live', via Zoom Webinar on Monday 28th August, at 6pm UK time. It will last about 50 minutes, after which we will answer questions you can type in to the Zoom system.
