This museum is installed in the building that formed the last dwelling of the celebrated valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida (1863-1923). The artist commissioned the construction of this building at the beginning of the 20th century and resided here until the end of his life. Following the death of Sorolla, his widow sold the building to the Spanish State, which transformed it into a museum in 1932. This museum contains the foremost collection of the painter’s work worldwide. In addition to the paintings themselves, visitors can see what an artist’s home was like at the beginning of the 20th century, since it has been sought to preserve the house the way it was originally, with the dwelling proper separated from the painter’s studio area.
