Museo Sorolla

37 Paseo General Martinez Campos
Madrid, 28010, Spain
TEL: 34 91 310-15-84

Native painter Joaquín Sorolla was a contemporary and friend of John Singer Sargent, and the parallels in their paintings are immediately apparent. (They are so clear, in fact, that two years ago the Thyssen-Bornemisza mounted an entire show around their commonalities). Sorolla documented the bourgeoisie of late-19th- and early-20th-century Spain as well as common people, and his gorgeous, often haunting, heavy oils are on display in what was his former home.

Insider Tip:

The outdoor patio is small but lovely, with Andalusian tiles and running water. It costs nothing to sit in the garden and read.
