Description

Alan Read returns to Bell House to explore Sorolla: The Spanish Master of Light - an exhibition at The National Gallery, running from March 18th to July 7th.

The exhibition, is the first UK exhibition of Spain's Impressionist, Sorolla, in over a century. Known as the 'master of light' for his iridescent canvases, this is a rare opportunity to see the most complete exhibition of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida's (1863–1923) paintings outside Spain.

From the vivid seascapes, garden views, and bather scenes for which he is most renowned, to portraits, landscapes and genre scenes of Spanish life, the exhibition features more than 60 works spanning Sorolla's career – many of which are travelling from private collections and from afar.

Tickets cost £10.
