9780500976937: Joaquin Sorolla

A comprehensive look at the masterworks of this influential modern Spanish painter, published in association with the Museo Nacional del Prado.

Joaquin Sorolla (1863–1923) is a master of Spanish modern painting and an influential figure in the history of art. To celebrate his accomplishments, the Museo Nacional del Prado has organized an ambitious exhibition and catalogue that place Sorolla among the pantheon of great Spanish painters: El Greco, Velázquez, and Goya.

The 138 works featured make up the most far-reaching exhibition devoted to a nineteenth-century painter in the Prado’s history. Gathered here are paintings from collections and major museums in Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, London, Venice, Paris, New York, Boston, Dallas, and St. Louis, including most notably Sorolla’s exceptional set of panels entitled La Vision de Espana.

The book features detailed and up-to-date information on all the works, along with texts that explore and analyze Sorolla’s paintings and his position both in Spanish art history and on the international scene. 300 color illustrations

About the Author:

José Luis Diez is a senior curator of nineteenth-century painting at the Museo Nacional del Prado in Madrid, Spain.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. Valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla (1863–1923) was perhaps second only to Manet as an object of both intense admiration and vituperative attack, argues the final essay in this visually dazzling and critically astute Prado exhibition catalogue. The book opens with an extensive biographical essay convincingly arguing that the commercial success of Sorolla's beach scenes has overshadowed his masterful portraits and historical, religious and social paintings. This exemplary catalogue, edited by two Prado curators, and including works from major European and American collections, is a comprehensive critical introduction to Sorolla's magnificently varied oeuvre. 300 color illus.
