The aim of this exhibition is to present the set of works Joaquín Sorolla made for the Hispanic Society of America in New York, the most important project of his life and to which he dedicated his greatest efforts. In 1911, the founder of the Hispanic Society, Archer M. Huntington, entrusted the Valencian painter with the decoration of a large hall in its New York premises. The result was a series of large-sized paintings, known as The Regions of Spain, which synthesised the vision of Spain at that time seen through Sorolla’s eyes. The exhibition, which will travel to the Fine Arts Museum in Valencia after its presentation in Madrid, shows a complete set of studies and sketches made by Sorolla for the above-mentioned panels, as well as some portraits of illustrious Spaniards, also requested by Huntington to decorate the library of the same institution.
