Introduction

The National Gallery is currently showing the first exhibition in modern times in London devoted to the work of the Spanish artist Joachin Sorolla. He lived until 1923 and his wide range of work from sun filled landscape and genre scenes, to portraits, social themes and nudes, was hugely popular in his life time, but fell out of favour after his death. This brief introduction will contribute to the growing efforts to bring his wonderful work back before the public eye.
