Yesterday, the Barceló Foundation opened a new photographic exhibition at its headquarters in Palma (C/ San Jaime, 4).
Entitled “Sorolla in his paradise” and organized by the Sorolla Museum and the Sorolla Museum Foundation, the exhibition reflects the close relationship that existed between the painter and photography, one of his great passions. So much so that thanks to it, he met Antonio García (the great patriarch of Valencian photography) who would end up becoming his father-in-law, since he married with his daughter Clotilde García.
Despite of the importance of his figure and his status as an artist, Joaquín Sorolla was always the objective of photographers, from the masters of his time such as the Majorcan Guillem Bestard to some of the great American photographers such as Sebastian Cruset or Williams M. Hollinger, with whom he maintained a close relationship after his 1909 exhibitions.
The photographic exhibition can be visited, free of charge, until 30th of November 2019. Visiting hours are from Monday to Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
