The Spanish painter Joaquin Sorolla (Born February 27, 1863 Valencia, died August 10, 1923) produced a very diverse output. Bright beach scenes, warm portraits, and more that vary in subject matter and style. Yet all are suffused with a spirit that says "Life is joy!"
Here are a few samples:
The White Boat
And They Still Say Fish are Expensive!
The Actress, María Guerrero
Boy with a Ball
and, a Self-Portrait
