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

Waiting for the Catch, Valencia Beach

1907
Oil on canvas, 89 x 111 cm
Private collection

Sorolla's enthusiasm for painting en plein air on the Valencian Beaches is well documented. Here he paints one of his famous beach scenes with vigorous, staccato brush strokes. Though brightly coloured, the small figures on the beach in the foreground are dominated by the vast sea and endless sky.
