SOROLLA Y BASTIDA, Joaquín
(b. 1863, Valencia, d. 1923, Cercedilla)

Selling the Catch at Valencia

1903
Oil on canvas, 93 x 126 cm
Diputación Provincial, Valencia

The dramatic immediacy of the present painting derives from the gradation of its harmonious palette and the broad, solid forms established by its brushwork. In this picture Sorolla captured both the strong light of the south and the everyday life of Spanish fishing folk.
