In celebration of the centennial of Joaquin Sorolla's death, the Royal Palace and the Prado have mounted special exhibitions. (Open through June 30th and 18th, respectively.) I'm quite looking forward to getting to them next month.
Has anyone had a chance to see them?
(Sorolla sidenote- While in Venice last month a friend and fellow Sorolla fan messaged to tell me that one of his greatest masterpieces is in La Serenissima. I love a random adventure as an excuse to wander, and Ca Pesarro proved a multi-faceted delight. Not only the massive Sorolla, Mending the Sail, but also the rest of the collection, works bought by the city over more than 100 years of biennials, the building itself, the walk there, and, one of my most treasured moments of the trip—the museum cafe's terrace is the Gran Canal facing entry landing to this grand palazzo.)
