Visit to Sorolla Museum
Visited the museum. Earlier this year I saw the "Sargent / Sorolla" exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum. I became interested in the two painters. Was able to see Sargent's work in Boston (Public Library and Isabella Steart Gardner Museum) and now more Sorolla at the museum that was his home in Madrid. In the new year I hope to be able to visit the exhibition of the large-scale pictures he did for the Hispanic Society of America in New York.
