4 March3 July 2016

For the first time in Germany the Kunsthalle in Munich is presenting a comprehensive retrospective by the Spanish artist, Joaquín Sorolla (1863–1923). A native of Valencia, the artist had the unparalleled ability to capture the southern light in paint; his sun-drenched works even impressed contemporaries like Claude Monet. More

“When do I paint? Always. I’m painting now while I look at you and speak with you.”

Joaquín Sorolla, 1909


“That isn’t painting. It is an abduction of light and color from nature.”

Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, 1887
