The Sorolla Museum is an exceptional example of house museum. It preserves almost intact the original atmosphere of the house and workshop of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (Valencia, 1863-Cercedilla, 1923) and also houses the richest collection of works by the painter. It is undoubtedly one of the most complete and best preserved artist houses in Europe.
This monograph tells the life of the painter and shows in images the artist's house highlighting of course its main value: Sorolla's painting full of luminosity and optimism.
The museum is also surrounded by a delightful garden that Sorolla himself designed with such accuracy of proportions that it is monumental and intimate at the same time, effectively isolating the house from the outside bustle, safeguarding its tranquility and making it an oasis in the centre of Madrid.
