The National Arts Club is proud to partner with the Hispanic Society Museum and Library in presenting this landmark exhibition commemorating the Valencian master Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. The exhibition features the work of the Valencian master Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida—the preeminent artist in Spain at the turn of the 20th century—on the occasion of the centennial year of his death. On view are Sorolla’s rarely-seen preparatory sketches for the paintings in the HSM&L’s Sorolla Gallery, Vision of Spain. This is the first time the works are being exhibited in the U.S.
The Hispanic Society Museum & Library (HSM&L) will open its doors on February 17th to the exhibition, Nuestra Casa: Rediscovering the Treasures of the Hispanic Society Museum & Library, revealing a number of hidden gems from the expansive, permanent collections of the museum that comprise more than 750,000 objects. Organized by guest curator and art historian Dr. Madeleine Haddon.
As the Museum continues the comprehensive renovation of the Museum’s Main Building, they have started to reopen new and exciting spaces. The Museum recently inaugurated the first ever temporary exhibition space, the East Building Gallery, and have reactivated its outdoor space with exhibitions and public programs on Audubon Terrace.
