About the Museum
The Sorolla Museum (Museo Sorolla) occupies the house that was the home of the painter and his family since 1911. The collections are distributed throughout all the areas visited by the house, which has preserved almost intact the decoration it had during the life of Joaquín Sorolla. The painting collection coexists with the furniture and the original objects of the house. It is one of the best preserved artist houses in Europe. The painting works that are normally exhibited may vary from placement in the rooms, since the Sorolla Museum organizes its own temporary exhibitions and also lends for exhibitions organized by other institutions. The museum aspires to promote to the maximum the knowledge and enjoyment of the legacy of Joaquín Sorolla by all types of public, in the conviction that this legacy, and in particular the works of Joaquín Sorolla, can offer them a positive and enriching emotional and aesthetic experience, to stimulate their senses, to awaken in them the awareness of the sense of sight as an instrument of knowledge and to encourage them to use their own creative abilities.
