Joaquín Sorolla

Impressionism   •   Joaquín Sorolla @ Wikipedia

Joaquín Sorolla lost his parents who died of cholera at the age of two. He grew up with his aunt. He first learned a secure crafting profession and became a locksmith. Since his master had noticed his artistic talent, he could take private drawing lessons. Sorolla's first exhibitions in Valencia were so successful that the state granted him a scholarship to travel to Rome and Paris. Impressed by the French impressionists, he began to paint in the same way. He always worked in the open air and ridiculed painting in the closed space of the studio, which he compared to a garage where repairs could be made.

"I hate the dark, Monet once said that painting is generally not bright enough, I agree with him, but we painters can never reproduce sunlight as it really is, I can only approach the truth."

His most famous paintings, such as the beach walk of 1909 or children on the beach of Valencia in 1919 showing people by the sea, are therefore all bright, bathed in light and show the movement of the wind in the hair of the sitter, waving cloths or the course of the waves. Already during his lifetime, the works of Sorolla were considered worldwide with recognition and numerous awards. When Sorolla painted a picture in his garden, he suffered a stroke and remained paralyzed until his death three years later. © Meisterdrucke
