Sorolla from Havana

Exhibition Photo: Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida - Girl on a BeachIf you happen to be in Spain, maybe searching for your baggage lost at Heathrow's Terminal 5, you'll find a must-see art exhibition at the Fundación Caixa Galicia in Santiago de Compostela: Sorolla e os seus contemporáneos (Sorolla and his Contemporaries). The exhibition comprises 60 Spanish works of art from the Museo de Bellas Artes in Havana, with the emphasis on Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida, my favourite impressionist. Seventeen of his oil paintings are on display. This photo from the exhibition shows a typical Sorolla beach scene. For once the blurb is informative and worth reading (title link). The exhibition continues until 6 July.
