The scarce English-language catalogue for a major retrospective of the work of Joaquin Sorolla at the Prado Museum. The exhibition served to place Sorolla as a major figure in the history of Spanish art. 102 works were on display and they are each extensively illustrated and discussed within the catalogue. Also present are several essays on the artist, a bibliography, a chronological biography and a list of exhibitions. The wealth of detail, illustration and research makes this the key work on Sorolla published in English.
