One of the most extraordinary Spanish artists from Valencia; Joaquin Sorolla has become better known more recently.  He lived from 1863 to 1923 and created a world full of light and colour which delights the senses.  Sometimes a social painter he was more concerned with capturing light falling on bodies and sea-scapes and his wonderful technique will be considered in this colourful lecture.  His final Visions of Spain now in New York will also be shown.
