Joaquin Sorolla: Painter of Light – Thursday 5th November

Joaquin Sorolla: Painter of Light by Jacqueline Cockburn

One of the most extraordinary Spanish artists from Valencia; Joaquin Sorolla has become better known more recently. He lived from 1863 to 1923 and created a world full of light and colour which delights the senses. Sometimes a social painter he was more concerned with capturing light falling on bodies and sea-scapes and his wonderful technique will be considered in this colourful lecture.

Sorolla created a world full of light and colour which delights the senses. Those who saw the exhibition of his paintings last year will be fortunate to see some of them again, and those who didn’t are in for a delightful surprise.
