A painter of vast pieces in his early days -in the main works intended for salons and national exhibitions- Joaquín Sorolla (Valencia, 1863-1923) very soon developed a style of open-air painting of his own which, though not connected stylistically with the Barbizon School, nevertheless pursued the same postulates, as a result of which he came to be known as a Spanish Impressionist painter.

He began to devote himself entirely to this practice in 1900, painting landscapes, views of cities, studies of nature, seascapes and garden scenes in which he demonstrated his tremendous skill in capturing the effects of light. Joaquín Sorolla is unquestionably an essential book and the most complete work of reference on this artist from Valencia. It includes an insightful and in-depth essay by Blanca Pons-Sorolla, some 300 reproductions of his most important pieces, and an illustrated chronology

  >> Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the artist's great-granddaughter, is one of the most qualificated specialist on the work of the Spanish master of light.
