Joaquin Sorolla ‘s Beaching the Boat

Sorolla's Beaching the Boat (Afternoon Light)

Joaquin Sorolla at the Norton Museum of Art

Special Guest: Beaching the Boat (Afternoon Light) A Masterpiece by Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida

Overall, it is an image that demonstrates Joaquin Sorolla's equal allegiance to the Spanish tradition of realism and to the advanced art of his own day.  Beaching the Boat (Afternoon Light), is on loan from the Hispanic Society of America for two years, is presented in dialogue with two works by Sorolla from the Norton’s collection, Child on a Beach and Portrait of Enrique Recio y Gil."
