King Felipe VI and Queen Letizia of Spain today opened the “Sorolla through light” exhibition at the Royal Palace in Madrid. The immersive exhibition is dedicated to the centenary of the Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla and to commemorate the Sorolla year. The exhibition is organized by National Heritage, the Sorolla Foundation Museum and Light Art Exhibitions.
This exhibition is a fascinating display of the work of the Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla, who was characterized by his ability to capture light in his paintings and capture it in a unique and dazzling way. On display are some of Sorolla’s most iconic works, where one can appreciate his mastery in the use of light and colour to create bright and vibrant atmospheres that transport the viewer to the landscapes, beaches and gardens that the artist portrayed.
During the visit, King Felipe and Queen Letizia toured the exhibition where they were shown the introduction rooms, sensory rooms, family portraits, royal portraits and gardens, the sea and, finally, the Virtual Reality Room, where they could view the content through virtual reality glasses. Sorolla was known to give his paintings life through the loose brushstrokes that capture the brightness of the sun, the breeze of the sea and the warm tones of the earth.
Organized at the Genoa Halls of the Royal Palace from February 17 to June 23 2023, the project is part of the program of activities to commemorate the centenary of the painter’s death (1863-1923), declared an Event of Exceptional Public Interest (AEIP) by the Ministry of Culture and Sports. Consuelo Luca de Tena, former director of the Sorolla Museum, and Blanca Pons-Sorolla, the painter’s great-granddaughter and specialist in his work are the curators of this exhibition.
