(1863-1923) A lover of outdoor painting, light and the colours of the Mediterranean, Sorolla represents the zenith of Spanish Luminism. His fame soon travelled beyond his own country to spread through Europe and the United States, where he held several exhibitions. Sorolla is known for painting in an impressionistic style, including both sea scenes and landscapes. Nature was his workshop and his inspiration. He also became the most sought-after portraitist of his time, producing portraits of members of the Royal family and figures from the world of politics, the arts, and economics.
