Guided Art Tour & Lecture: Joaquin Sorolla at The Hispanic Society

Join us for the fourth installment of our Great Spanish Painters Series at the Hispanic Society of America. Showcasing some of their most remarkable works, the Hispanic Society is the perfect place to learn about these artists. The Hispanic Society is home to a vast collection of art, sculptures, paintings, textiles, and other important historical and archaeological relics from Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Host to some of the finest work in the Hispanic art world, this museum is a true hidden treasure of New York City.

Joaquin Sorolla will be our fourth painter reviewed at the Hispanic Society. Sorolla excelled in the painting of portraits, landscapes, and monumental works of social and historical themes. His most typical works are characterized by a dexterous representation of the people and landscape under the sunlight of his native land in Valencia, Spain.

Jorge Gallegos of Easy Español will guide the group on a focused examination of Joaquin Sorolla. We will look at his life, composition style and works featured at the Hispanic Society with a strong emphasis on Spanish culture and history.
