- 26/02/2017WOW, Great info here on Joaquín Sorolla:
Joaquín Sorolla received the Grand Prix and a Medal of Honour for 'Sad Inheritance' (Triste herencia) at the National Exhibition in Paris in 1900. The following year, Sorolla received another Medal of Honour at the 1901 National Exhibition in Madrid for the same painting.
In 1906, Sorolla put on an exhibition at the Georges Petit Galleries in Paris which included over 500 pieces of his artwork. This exhibition contained many of Sorolla's early paintings as well as his more recent impressionist landscapes that tended to focus on people wandering across sunny beaches. The Impressionist aspect can be seen in the way Joaquín Sorolla portrayed the sunlight falling on the subjects of the paintings.
Spanish Art - Joaquín Sorolla
Sorolla continued to produce many paintings extremely quickly and held many more of these large scale exhibitions in London and Germany. While on his trip to England, Sorolla met Archer Milton Huntington who later invited Sorolla to be a member of the Hispanic Society of America. In 1909, Sorolla did another large exhibition at the Hispanic Society of America, displaying 356 paintings. During that exhibition, Joaquín Sorolla managed to sell 195 of those paintings.
With regards to commissions, Sorolla's biggest commission came in 1911 when he was asked to paint a series of paintings depicting everyday life in Spain, which were to hang in the Hispanic Society of America. Sorolla, however, decided to adapt this commission so that each painting represented the different regions of Spain. These paintings took up most of Joaquín Sorolla's time and when they were finally completed in 1919, Sorolla was exhausted. He became ill, suffering a stroke in 1920, and died three years later in 1923.

Comments22/01/2017 #1 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorThe City has the funding plan in place, and has recently completed the the design phase of a plan to build a new center for the arts in Savannah. This facility will replace the inadequate leased space that houses our Cultural Affairs Department at Whitaker and Henry streets. It will include state-of-the-art classroom, studio, gallery and performance space.
On Sept. 9, 2015, the Historic District Board of Review gave final design approval for the new center (see images above and below), to be built on a long-vacant lot at at Oglethorpe Avenue and Montgomery Street -- a key gateway into Savannah with wonderful proximity to Savannah's other major art facilities, such as the Jepson Center for the Arts, the SCAD Museum of Art, and the Johnny Mercer Theater at the Savannah Civic Center. The development will also partially restore Elbert Square, one of Savannah's "lost" squares on Montgomery Street.
This will be a place where working artists can interact and share with each other, and where students of all ages -- from young children to retired seniors -- can engage in the visual and performance arts. It will not be just a place where local people can see good art, hear good music and enjoy good performances. It will be a place where they can be engaged in creating art too. (read all that the Department of Cultural Affairs currently offers at www.savannahga.gov/arts).

Comments15/01/2017 #4 Don 🐝 Kerr@Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand Ambassador Savannah is such a lovely town. Some of my most favourite photos are those of the incredible wrought iron work that adorns so many of the buildings. For that matter, when I was a child, my father imported wrought iron window treatments and railings for our family home in Hespeler, Ontario, Canada where they still grace the house.15/01/2017 #1 Bill Stankiewicz, 🐝 Brand AmbassadorThanks @Devesh Bhatt, you live in a great country, been there after business trips from Dubai, and Dr Subhash Chandra Show has shared cool information.
