Visit to the Sorolla Museum

On Sunday afternoon we had an opportunity to visit the Museo Sorolla in Madrid. It was a free visit day, and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice and extensive the museum was. Museo Sorolla is located in the artist's former home, a beautiful villa with gardens. I have featured several of Sorolla's paintings in previous posts (see here and here).

Sorolla's studio is now a bright exhibition space. The walls are covered with his paintings, as they were when he was working there in the early 1900s. His beach scenes are prominently featured, along with paintings of his family.

The museum does not prevent taking of photos without flash, and we were able to see many of his famous works. The one below was fitting for Mothers Day.
