SMU Hosts Joaquin Sorolla Exhibition

An exhibit of works by a Spanish painter who achieved acclaim in the U.S. in the early 20th century has opened in Dallas.

The first major exhibit to focus on Joaquin Sorolla's impact in America opened last week at Southern Methodist University's Meadows Museum. The show, "Sorolla and America," features more than 160 works from the artist whose paintings included portraits, landscapes and scenes from everyday life.

A large portion of the works from Sorolla's 1909 and 1911 exhibits in America went to private collections. The Dallas exhibit features more than 100 works that haven't been publicly displayed since then. More than 40 works in the exhibit have never before been publicly displayed.

After closing April 19 in Dallas, the exhibit travels to San Diego and Madrid.
