Valencia-born but a long-time Madrileño, Joaquín Sorolla still astonishes us with the luminosity of his work.
Various paintings by Spain's 19th-century master, and the house just as he lived in it.
This state-owned museum is located at Paseo General Martínez Campos 37 in the Almagro district of central Madrid, just off the Paseo de la Castellana. It is devoted to one of Spain's most important painters, Valencia-born Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923), known especially for his ability to so evocatively capture the Mediterranean Sea, shores, and sunlight. This is also where Sorolla spent the last few years of his life, and thus includes his studio and a collection of the artist's belongings, as well as a delightful garden and some lovely period furnishings. It is closed on Mondays; there is no admission charge on Sundays and Saturdays after 2PM.
