Soroli. Nude woman
ThisExhibitionexplores the creative process and the method of work of Joaquin Sorolla (1863–1923) from 1902 to 1906, a critical period in the artist’s career. At the heart of the exhibition is Naked Woman, a stunning picture that is exhibited in the United States for the first time in more than 100 years.

The magnificent work was inspired by Sorolla's desire to create a picture that would compete with Velasquez's famous painting “The Toilet of Venus” (1647-51).

In addition to The Naked Woman, the exhibition presents paintings from the Museum’s collection, such as Blind of Toledo (1906) and The Beach in Valencia (c. 1904–5), as well as several preparatory drawings recently purchased from the artist’s descendants.
