Last weekend I spent a sunny afternoon in Madrid at the house of Joaquin Sorolla. This a must visit in Madrid. The home is in a quiet and beautiful residential section of the city. The gardens designed by Sorolla reflect regional diversity and are maintained beautifully. The home is a museum devoted to paintings of his family and friends as well as studies for his great masterwork, The Provinces of Spain, now on view at the recently restored Hispanic Society of America on 155th Street in Manhattan.
