The former home and studio of painter Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923)—known as the Spanish Sargent for his virtuoso brushwork and shimmering light effects—exhibits many of his iconic works of the sun-dappled Mediterranean coast in his native Valencia or the tony resorts of the Basque seaside. Later in his career, Sorolla was the go-to portraitist for American tycoons, robber barons, and business titans. The palatial home provides an enduring example of the art of gracious living in turn-of-the-century Madrid.
