Sorolla is a great painter, and his work is an inspiration to me as a painter too. He is not very well known in the USA but should be. The work at the Hispanic Society in NYC is worth the visit for those how don't know his work. The show at the Prado is inclusive of his best works, many from his home/studio museum in Madrid.

This is a real jewel. I think there could not be a better edition about Soralla. The selection of the paintings and the quality are great.
Do not doubt in choosing this book.
