The Life and Wonderful Works of the Artist Joaquin Sorolla

By John Hopwood

Born in Valencia to a wealthy family of fabric makers and then orphaned at the age of three being raised by his aunt, the wife of a poor locksmith, this artist rapidly became famous for his wonderful paintings. He was particularly well known for his wonderful beach scenes showing children at play as well as his fabulous studio portraits of his wonderfully observed events.
