Now open in the Sainsbury Wing, our exhibition 'Sorolla: Spanish Master of Light', is the first UK exhibition of Spain's Impressionist, Sorolla, in over a century. Visit our website to book tickets online and save. 
Known as the 'master of light' for his iridescent canvases, this is a rare opportunity to see the most complete exhibition of Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida's paintings outside Spain.

From the vivid seascapes, garden views, and bather scenes for which he is most renowned, to portraits, landscapes and genre scenes of Spanish life, the exhibition features more than 60 works spanning Sorolla's career – many of which are travelling from private collections and from afar.

In this painting, called 'Strolling Along the Seashore', Sorolla's wife, Clotilde, and his daughter, María, promenade along Valencia's El Cabañal beach. Their white dresses glow in the late afternoon light. The sea breeze blowing Clotilde's veil against her face gives the picture the impression of having been captured in an instant. 
The cropping of Clotilde's hat by the top of the canvas, and the broad, empty strip of sand at the bottom, reinforce the scene's ephemeral quality.

This painting is called 'Sewing the Sail'. In the dappled shade of a pergola, a family work together on a sail for a fishing boat. The beach and sea from which they make their livelihood can be glimpsed through the open door. The happy mood and idyllic setting, and Sorolla's impressive handling of the various tones of white that dominate the composition, earned considerable praise at numerous international exhibitions.

Come to Room 22 and you’ll find our Rembrandts! Rembrandt van Rijn aspired to be a painter of biblical and mythological subjects, which were held in higher regard than portraits. But portraiture was more profitable, and after settling in Amsterdam around 1631, Rembrandt enjoyed enormous success as a portrait painter. From the middle of the 17th century, his increasingly rough and brooding style of painting was out of step with a new fashion for smoothly painted and more evenly lit works. He nevertheless continued to receive portrait commissions from some of the most prominent people in the country, who remained impressed with his unparalleled skill in conveying character. 
Rembrandt also painted more self portraits than any other 17th century artist and here you can see a self portrait he painted when he was 34. 
This portrait shows Rembrandt at the height of his career, presenting himself in a self-assured pose wearing an elaborate costume in the fashion of the 16th century. It seems as if Rembrandt refers deliberately to his famous predecessors in this portrait, and thus places himself in the tradition of great 'Old Masters'. The word 'conterfeycel' (more properly conterfeytsel) is an archaic Dutch term for portrait.

During #WomensHistoryMonth, we're celebrating the women in our collection: the artists, the patrons, the muses. Click the link in our bio to learn more about Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, the 18th century court painter of Marie Antoinette.

Finely dressed, gazing confidently, and holding her artist’s materials, Le Brun presents herself, on one hand, as a beautiful young woman, and on the other hand, as a professional artist. Her pose mimics a famous painting by Peter Paul Rubens, Portrait of Susannah Lunden, also known as 'Le Chapeau de Paille' (The Straw Hat). In spite of its name, Rubens’s portrait does not actually depict a straw hat – so, in her response, Le Brun playfully corrects the Old Master’s ‘mistake’ by depicting herself in one.

I don't drink coffee but this cappuccino-coloured sketchbook has me like 😍☕⁣⠀

Spent the morning sketching 'Mrs Nesbitt with a Dove' by Sir Joshua Reynolds at the @wallacemuseum. I'm so used to painting on white paper that sketching on toffee-coloured paper is a veritable playdate⁣.⁣

I had quite a lot of anxiety today, but I’m still glad I got out of the house, and saw my dad.
He took me to the Escher X Nendo Exhibition (he had already seen it) and he also got us both a coffee table book.
It actually only crossed my mind at some point when we were walking around that my pants actually matched the event perfectly #accidentalfashion 😋🥰 “Escher X nendo | Between Two Worlds is a groundbreaking exhibition that features the work of Dutch artist M.
