One large canvas, “Mother and Baby” is an expanse of cool, billowing serenity. Aside from the paintings, the house itself is worth the visit. The first floor is still furnished as Sorolla left it, with the artist's studio and his inviting day-bed.

The Sorolla Museum also has a lovely garden based on designs from the Alhambra.
The museum is just right for my burgeoning homeopathic experiment. S1 and S2 are ages 15 and 12, and just beginning to build up their tolerance for rooms full of paintings. Their only comment was that Sorolla seemed to like painting naked little boys on the beach. It’s early days yet.
