Sorolla's house takes visitors into the artist's world in a unique way, with his paintings and personal belongings.
Situated in the artist's house and studio that the great painter from Valencia established in Madrid, the Sorolla Museum displays his works of art as well as the furniture and objects that were part of his everyday life. Visitors can also enjoy the gardens that surround the building, which were designed by the painter himself. The building and gardens are a singular space that reveals the Valencian painter's creative and vital intimacy, and the essence of the times in which he lived.

This is a delightful way to take a closer look at his way of analysing "the natural" and his use of colour. It is also a chance for visitors to experience for themselves the numerous hours that the artist from Valencia spent beside the sea, until it evolved into one of his greatest sources of inspiration.More info
