The new exhibition at the Giverny Impressionisms Museum begins on 14th July 2016 which presents the works of the Spanish Impressionist artist, Joaquin Sorolla.
The exhibition, entitled “Sorolla, a Spanish artist in Paris”, provides a thorough insight into Sorolla’s connections with Paris from the first time he stayed in the city in 1885 until his consecration as portrait artist of a cosmopolitan clientele.
The exhibition lay-out enables one to understand how the artist’s completely original style was shaped in the turn-of-the-century Paris, the city where he discovered the new movements, in particular those which advocated naturalism.
Amonst the approximately fifty paintings on display at the exhibition, some have been brought from the Sorolla Museum in Madrid and the others belong to either American or European public or private collections. Most of these works were either exhibited at the Paris Salon or featured amongst those displayed at the Georges Petit gallery exhibition in 1906 and contributed to helping Sorolla consolidate his reputation.
Exhibition runs from 14th July to 6th November 2016
