VALENCIA COMMEMORATES 100 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF DEATH OF JOAQUÍN SOROLLA
2023 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Joaquín Sorolla, Valencia’s most renowned impressionist painter who captured the light of the Mediterranean in his works.
The Museum of Fine Arts of Valencia has permanent exhibitions of his work such as "Grupa valenciana" and "Figuras de casacas jugando en un jardín". In addition to these, an immersive display entitled "Sorolla a través de la luz" that will showcase some of his rarely exhibited pieces.
There will also be guided tours of Valencia City to visit the sites associated with the painter, including his birthplace, next to the church of Santa Catalina where he was baptized; the Centro del Carmen, the School of Fine Arts where he studied; the Bancaja Cultural Centre, where there will be temporary exhibitions dedicated to the artist; and Malvarrosa beach, which inspired some of his most famous scenes.
The Vertical restaurant will also be offering a menu inspired by Soralla’s work.
