Sorolla's Courtyard

Sorolla's Courtyard  12 x 8 Oil on Board 

I had the pleasure of visiting Sorolla's house in Madrid.  His studio was wonderful and his house is filled with his paintings and beautiful loose studies he did for the Visions of Spain series. Like alot of other artists he spent alot of time designing his garden.  This is my study of his entry with a refreshing shady courtyard that was a delightful contrast to the blazing Spanish sun.
