Lives of Giovanni Bellini
Spanish painter Joaquin Sorolla (1863 – 1923) was fascinated by fashion, in particular, the way women presented themselves at the seaside, in their homes, in cafes and on city streets. He would frequently write letters to his wife from his sojourns in Paris, reporting on the new trends and dresses he was planning to bring home for her and their daughters.
This interest in the fashion of the day permeates his work. In his canvases, women are realised in loose, dynamic brushstrokes, and are clothed in popular garments, jewellery and accessories of the time. From sashes billowing in the sea air to delicate lace embroidery, Sorolla captured the exquisite and sumptuous display of female attire in his paintings.
Lavishly produced and richly illustrated, Joaquin Sorolla: Sorolla and Fashion explores how the ‘painter of light’ portrayed the fashion of the times through shimmering, luminous colour and large-scale Impressionist style.
