Donations

The Sorolla Museum is itself the result of a donation, that of Clotilde García del Castillo, which was subsequently enhanced by her children. The generosity of the Sorolla family enabled the creation of a museum and designated a specific place to house a large number of Sorolla’s works, thus raising awareness of and facilitating further study of the painter. The Museum’s collection is not a closed one, and it aims to offer as complete a collection as possible of Sorolla’s works.

Deposits

The Museum also exhibits some of Sorolla's paintings that we hold as deposits, which have been temporarily and generously loaned by their owners. These are works of extraordinary quality that enrich our understanding of Sorolla's wide and varied pictorial production. They complete the Museum's collection on their temporary return to the place where they were created.
