May 25 @ 10:45 am – 1:00 pm
Barbara de Simone, our fellow member will introduce us to the temporary exhibition “The blessed age. Childhood in Sorolla’s painting” at the Sorolla Museum. With the emergence of naturalism in the arts, at the end of the 19th century, the themes of everyday life became popularised: work, family life and leisure became valid matters for painting; highlighting among all of them childhood. Sorolla, like his contemporaries, but with a quality difficult to achieve, painted numerous works in which the little ones erected themselves as the main motif.
They are his famous maternity homes, the beautiful family scenes, the numerous portraits, the paintings where children represent the “joy of water” and also paintings in which the teacher approaches alternative types of childhoods, less fortunate, harder, but always portrayed with great affection and dignity. We will have a coffee and talk about the exhibition at a cafe nearby afterwards.
We hope to see you there!
