The Meadows Museum will present "Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections," featuring 26 paintings from American private collections, some of which will be displayed publicly for the first time in decades. The curator of the exhibition is Blanca Pons-Sorolla, renowned Sorolla scholar and the artist’s great-granddaughter. It joins a worldwide celebration of the artist, dubbed the "Year of Sorolla/Año Sorolla" by Spain’s Ministry of Culture, during the centennial anniversary of his death.

"Spanish Light: Sorolla in American Collections" captures the long-standing affection for Sorolla in the U.S. by bringing to public view some two dozen paintings drawn from private collections. Highlighting Sorolla’s most popular and characteristic subjects, such as the white sails of Valencian fishing boats, children frolicking on the shoreline, lively garden scenes, and pensive figural studies, the exhibition offers a singular opportunity to see Sorolla through the lens of his current American collectors, who represent the legacy of the artist’s popularity in this country.

The exhibition will be on display through January 7, 2024.
