Museo de Bellas Artes
The Museo de Bellas Artes (Museum of Fine Arts) of Valencia is hosting an exhibition dedicated to Joaquin Sorolla and his contemporaries: Pinazo, José and Mariano Benlliure, Muñoz Degraín, Antonio Fillol or Cecilio Plà.
The concept of this exhibition is without precedent, as it has never before united what are known as the sorollistas, the school of followers of his style, and the postsorollistas, the artist’s last followers, under the same banner.
The exhibition is open until the 30th of August 2020.
– Tuesday to Sunday: 10:00 – 20:00.
– Access is completely free.
Museo de Bellas Artes of Valencia: Calle San Pío V, 9.
More information can be found on the museum’s website.
Museo de Bellas Artes Valencia offers free visits every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday during the summer months.
