Sorolla Record

Joaquin Sorolla's Pescadores Valencianos (Valencian Fishermen) of 1895 fetched a record auction price for the artist of £3,737,250 ($5,945,591) at Sotheby's London sale of 19th Century European Paintings yesterday, far exceeding its pre-sale estimate of £1.5m - £2m. It was bought by a European Foundation (CLICK). Just a fleeting visit to Blighty.
