Sorolla returns to Valencia

Considered one of the greatest of impressionists, post-impressionists and painters, Sorolla (Valencia, 1863-Cercedilla, 1923) returns to his hometown in the form of an art exhibition. Thanks to the Bancaja Foundation, the Obra Social "la Caixa", the Sorolla Foundation and Museum, at the Bancaja Cultural Centre, between November 7th of this year and March 19th, 2018, art lovers will be able to attend the Sorolla, A Garden to Paint exhibition, which is organised in Plaza de Tetuán, at number 23 in the city of Turia and with free entry. The opening hours are from Monday to Sunday and guided tours are on Fridays and Saturdays at 18:30.

There are two reasons why Sorolla, A Garden to Paint exhibition takes place here. The first of these is that ten years have passed since the adaptation was carried out at the Bancaja Foundation's cultural headquarters and that it has allowed events of this type to be held. The second, strictly for artistic reasons, is to show a part of Sorolla's not very well known work: his paintings of gardens.

This exhibition has an antecedent in the one held in Seville, which included paintings of Andalusian gardens such as those of Alhambra or Reales Alcázares of Seville that influenced the painter so much. For this new event, the organisation has also included different works with Valencian gardens as an artistic theme.

The exhibition will feature the director of the Sorolla Museum, Consuelo Luca de Tena, and María López as co-curator. The total of works included in this event will be 120, from the Sorolla Museum itself, but also from other museums such as the Carmen Thyssen in Malaga, the Museum of Fine Arts in Valencia, and the Hispanic Society of America.

As for the artistic samples, these range from oil paintings and drawings to sculptures and photographs. All of them are from Sorolla's later years, a period that the Valencian painter highlighted in his work through colours, and living in nature.

In order to better understand Sorolla's work, the exhibition has also created a catalogue of texts that accompany his works. The texts have been put together by experts such as the previously mentioned Consuelo Luca de Tena, Enrique Varela and Ana Luengo Añón.

Note that in order for the experience to be as dynamic as possible, other activities such as painting workshops and art in general are totally free to participate in for adults and children from 6 to 11 years of age.
