Sorolla Museum


CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE


The Sorolla Museum, which has retained the original atmosphere of the home and studio of the renowned Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863 - Cercedilla, 1923), houses the largest collection of his works. It is one of the best preserved house-museums of an artist in Europe, and its garden, which was also designed by him, is a little oasis in the city and was a common subject in his later paintings.

Situated in the Chamberi neighbourhood, just off the busy Castellana avenue, it was the home in which the artist lived with his family from 1911 till his death in 1923. The house and all its belongings were bequeathed to the Spanish government by his widow Clotilde García del Castillo in 1925 who asked for a museum to be opened in memory of her husband. In the museum, which opened in 1932 and which retains its original decor, you'll find most of the objects Sorolla acquired throughout his lifetime including sculptures, ceramics, traditional clothes and jewellery, letters and photographs. It is also home to a remarkable collection of over 1200 of his paintings and drawings, which has continued growing since 1982 thanks to works purchased by the Spanish state.
