Sorolla: A Vision of Spain takes us through Joaquín Sorolla’s unique journey, from his early career in Spain to the completion of his life’s most prominent work for the Hispanic Society in New York. Art enthusiasts can discover what made the artist’s use of light so singular, why he was so keen on painting in the outdoors and how he transformed unexpected sources of inspiration into notorious canvases. While the beaches of his hometown of Valencia inspired much of his work, Sorolla was a prolific artist who went beyond a single style of painting and a single source of inspiration. He captured moments with fast brushstrokes and painted quickly to capture the fleeting vibrations of light and moving waters of the sea, making him the “Spanish master of light” he was known to be in his lifetime.

Introduced by the words of the painter’s great-granddaughter, this book presents more than a hundred artworks and narrates all there is to know to get a grasp of the Spanish master’s extensive oeuvre, from his internationally acclaimed canvases to his more fortuitous pieces worth rediscovering. They are accompanied by photographs from José Ortiz-Echagüe, as well as numerous behind-the-scenes images of the painter at work. Both the author and Blanca Pons-Sorolla have taken part in the selection of artworks featured in the book.

Founded in Paris in 1994 by Prosper and Martine Assouline, Assouline is the first luxury brand on culture. It began with the desire to create a new, contemporary style of book, using the couple's experienced eye for visually rich stories and compelling narratives.

Guided by their passion for knowledge, culture and travel, the Assoulines have since expanded their vision to 1,700 titles in three main collections, along with special editions and unique library accessories—a grand oeuvre of inspiring creations. Throughout the last quarter of a century, the brand has established a network of international boutiques in prominent locations across the globe.

With a distinguished team of creative talents—which includes the founders' son Alexandre—the brand continues to reinvent the notion of true luxury. Assouline’s roster of collaborators includes some of the world’s most respected brands, artists, photographers, writers and designers.
