Are you interested in a country called Spain, that it is much more than bullfighters and flamenco? Do you feel like knowing something more about its culture, people, idiosyncrasy or its current situation? Please, come in

Today I am writing a post about a painting of my favourite Spanish painter, "Niña en la playa" (Girl on the beach) a glowing canvas by Joaquin Sorolla that was sold yesterday for 1.729.652 €, an amount exceeding its estimated price.

Painted in 1910, this picture remained for 50 years in a private collection and was offered for the first time to the highest bidder.

This work was one of the few he painted in Valencia in 1910, a year that the artist spent travelling around Spain.

He painted a picture full of life in which a little girl appears in closeup walking  on a wet sandy beach with a boat and a fisherman  seen in the distance.
