I tend to associate Spanish artist Joaquin Sorolla with sea, sand and surf, but of course he also painted portraits and gardens. Here's one of his earliest garden studies: Una azotea con flores (A rooftop with flowers) painted in 1902, when he was trying his hand at Impressionism. It comes up for grabs in Bonhams London auction on 5 December, estimated at £150,000 - £200,000 (CLICK).
