On our last day in Madrid, we decided to attempt a fourth museum. Little did we know it would be our favorite.
Tucked comfortably on a quiet Madreleño street is the Museo Sorolla, which houses a large collection of Spain’s most famous Impressionist painter: Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. The museum is actually the artist’s home, where the principal rooms were left as they were during the artist’s life, including Sorolla’s studio, where the walls are filled with his canvasses. The bedrooms are used as galleries to display Sorolla’s many paintings.
Even Kate was enthralled.

The artist’s study.
One of my favorites because she has a camera!
Painting of the Alhambra! Remember Granada?
I love that one of his wife, Clotilde.
He even took naps in there.
A very happy cat in Sorolla’s amazing studio. Not only was I impressed with
his work, I was freaking out at every detail of his studio.
…Like this giant cool trunk!
And his tiny pieces.
The one on the left though!
One of his (many) masterpieces.
Close up of this lovely portrait of his wife.
His brushes. In super cool Spanish ceramic holders, of course.
Another cool trunk!
You could see into his studio from the stairwell!

I love this one so much and it’s just lines. The man’s a genius.
See anyone you know here?
He also collected ceramics and art, of course.
One of my favorite museums I have ever visited. Thank you, Madrid, for introducing us to Sorolla! It’s free on Sundays, so if you have the chance, go!
Thanks for traveling with us! Next up, Alicante.
