The Museum’s mission, as set out in the will of its founder, Clotilde García del Castillo, is: “The conservation and public exhibition of the original works of Mr Joaquín Sorolla, as well as all the pictures, objets d'art, furniture, and so on, in the house situated at 37 Paseo del General Martínez Campos and any other works that may be acquired in the future for the museum”.

Accordingly, the Museum’s mission is to:

  • Preserve the legacy of Joaquín Sorolla: his home and garden, and the collections contained therein in the best possible condition so that they can be enjoyed by current and future generations.
  • Document and catalogue his collections so as to raise awareness of and better preserve them.
  • Carry out and promote research into the work of Joaquín Sorolla and its context from all perspectives.
  • Exhibit the collections in the best possible conditions in order to facilitate their viewing and interpretation.
  • Disseminate Sorolla’s legacy at all levels and make it accessible to as many people as possible.
  • Enhance the painting collections so as to have a complete selection of representative works from all stages of his career.


The Sorolla Museum aims to promote maximum awareness and enjoyment of Joaquín Sorolla’s legacy by as many people and types of public as possible in the conviction that this legacy, and particularly the works of Joaquín Sorolla, can provide a positive and enriching emotional and aesthetic experience, stimulate their senses, make them aware of the role of the sense of sight as an instrument of knowledge and encourage them to develop their own creative abilities.Salto de línea
