NOTES
This luminous painting shows the artist’s wife and daughters beneath the shade of a canopy on the beach at Zarauz in Northern Spain. The women’s veils flutter in the summer breeze. Sorolla enjoyed a great international reputation, particularly in America. This work was acquired in 1911 at the time of a major exhibit of the artist’s work at our Museum, then known as the City Art Museum of Saint Louis.
