This exhibition offers us the opportunity to appreciate up close the drawings of one of Valencia’s most emblematic artists.

Sorolla. Dibujante sin descanso, is the first exhibition in Valencia exclusively dedicated to the artist’s drawings.

The exhibition, which brings together more than a hundred works, is divided into four sections. The first brings together the drawings of Sorolla’s youth, a second section shows drawings of family scenes and everyday life, a section of preparatory drawings for his major works, and finally a sample of drawings of urban scenes.
This tour will also show the evolution of Sorolla’s works and his special passion for drawing.

We hope that this blog about circus and other events in Valencia has helped you to make plans for the weekend.

And by the way, don’t forget to practice your Spanish outside the classroom…
