This catalogue includes the exhibition that, after being held at the Gallerie d'Arte Moderna e Contemporanea in Ferrara (Italy), will take place between 2012 and 2013 in the Museo de Bellas Artes del Palacio Carlos V of Granada and the Museo Sorolla in Madrid.
Divided into five sections -Tierra, Agua, Patio, El Jardín and El Jardín de la Casa Sorolla-, presents the works that emerged from 1906-1908 as a result of the fascination of Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923) for the gardens, which I would paint directly outdoors in La Granja, the Alcázar of Seville, the Alhambra and the Generalife of Granada and in his house in Madrid. They are paintings in which the artist's interest in capturing the play of lights and shadows and the reflections in the water through a technique sketched with very loose brushstrokes and colorful colors is evident.
The catalogue is preceded by four essays written by Blanca Pons-Sorolla, Tomàs Llorens, María del Mar Villafranca, and Ana Luengo and David Ruiz, who analyze the painter's artistic career and the importance of gardens as one of the central themes of his work. work, with special attention to his stays in the Alhambra and the creation of the garden of his house in Madrid.
To finish, an annex includes a complete illustrated relation of all the works with that theme made by Sorolla in that same period.
