Sorolla comes back to London Gail Turner Thursday 21 March 2019


The work of the celebrated painter Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923) is full of colour and sunlight. Many of his finest paintings are on display in his former family home in Madrid and at the Hispanic Society, New York.  In 2019 the National Gallery, London will have a major exhibition dedicated to this delightful ‘Spanish impressionist’.

This lecture begins at 11 am, and coffee will be available from 10.15 onwards. 

We meet in the Centennial Suite, Weston Homes Community Stadium, United Way, Colchester CO4 5UP.
