Las Tres Velas de Sorolla – Canvas Print

Las Tres Velas de Sorolla, painted at the beginning of what is known as its culmination stage, are located on the Malvarrosa Beach in Valencia, in the summer of 1903, one of the painter’s most fruitful. This is how he felt, as expressed in a letter to his friend Pedro Gil Moreno de Mora:

I I’m very excited about what I see on the beach…, everything impresses me as if it’s the first time I’ve seen it, which makes me happy, because I imagine I’ll do something decent, which I desperately need… I’ll keep working hard, and I’ll tell you in a minor letter what I do… “

And he was not mistaken because, in addition to Las Tres Velas Sorolla painted such notable works as Pescadoras valencianas” and Sol de la tarde” during this summer.

The painting was displayed at the Berlin World’s Fair in 1904 and sold for 2,500 Mark to German banker Max Steinthal. He kept it in his office for more than thirty years, until the Third Reich came to power and tried to seize all of his possessions, including this painting, because he was Jewish.

To avoid this, Steinhal appointed his son-in-law Friedrich Vollmann, a non-Jewish member of the family, as executor, bringing him to Dresden. It was in Vollmann’s possession until 1950, when the authorities of the Democratic Republic of Germany demanded his entire estate, forcing him to flee to West Germany.

Nothing more was heard of the canvas until 2002, when the basements of Dresden’s old art gallery were forced to be evacuated due to floods. There were several boxes with the name Steinhal and a painting of Las Tres Velas de Sorolla in one of them. Following the completion of the necessary checks, the work was returned to the banker’s heirs, who sold it at Sotheby’s in November 2004 for 2.4 million Euros.

In 2008 the work went up for auction in New York again, bought by an anonymous collector for 2.9 million Euros.

Joaquín Sorolla

(Valencia, 1863 – Cercedilla, España, 1923) Pintor valenciano famoso. Formado en su ciudad natal con el escultor Capuz, estudió posteriormente las obras del Museo del Prado y, gracias a una beca, pudo residir y estudiar en Roma de 1884 a 1889. En esta época se dedicó sobre todo a cuadros de temática histórica.

Un viaje a París en 1894 lo puso en contacto con la pintura impresionista, lo que supuso una verdadera revolución en su estilo. Abandonó los temas anteriores y comenzó a pintar al aire libre, dejándose invadir por la luz y el color del Mediterráneo.

Son precisamente las obras de colores claros y pincelada vigorosa que reproducen escenas a orillas del mar las que más se identifican con el arte de Sorolla.

Sin embargo, fue un artista muy activo, que realizó también numerosos retratos de personalidades españolas y algunas obras de denuncia social bajo la influencia de su amigo Blasco Ibáñez.

Su estilo agradable y fácil hizo que recibiera innumerables encargos, que le permitieron gozar de una desahogada posición social. Su fama rebasó las fronteras españolas para extenderse por toda Europa y Estados Unidos, donde expuso en varias ocasiones.

De 1910 a 1920 pintó una serie de murales con temas regionales para la Hispanic Society of America de Nueva York.

En el estilo más característico de Sorolla, el de técnica y concepción impresionista, destaca la representación de la figura humana (niños desnudos, mujeres con vestidos vaporosos) sobre un fondo de playa o de paisaje, donde los reflejos, las sombras, las transparencias, la intensidad de la luz y el color transfiguran la imagen y dan valor a temas en sí mismo intrascendentes

.Algunos críticos consideran estas obras un cruce entre los impresionistas franceses y los acuarelistas ingleses. 

Las Tres Velas de Sorolla

Joaquín Sorolla

(Valencia, 1863 – Cercedilla, Spain, 1923) Famous Valencian painter. Trained in his hometown with the help of sculptor Capuz, he later studied the works of the Prado Museum and, thanks to a scholarship, was able to reside and study in Rome from 1884 to 1889.

At this time he devoted himself above all to paintings on historical themes.
A trip to Paris in 1894 brought him into contact with the Impressionist movement, which changed his style completely.

He abandoned the previous subjects and began to paint in the outdoors, allowing himself to be influenced by the light and color of the Mediterranean. It is precisely the works of light colors and vigorous brushstrokes, reproductions of the seashore scenes that are most identified with the art of Sorolla.

However, he was a very active artist, who also made numerous portraits of Spanish personalities and some works of social character under the influence of his friend Blasco Ibáñez.

Pleasant and easy style made him receive countless commissions, which allowed him to enjoy a comfortable social position. His fame went beyond the Spanish borders to spread throughout Europe and the United States, where he exhibited on several occasions.

From 1910 to 1920 he painted a series of murals with regional themes for the Hispanic Society of America in New York.

In Sorolla’s most characteristic style, that of impressionist technique and conception, the representation of the human figure stands out (naked children, women in vaporous dresses) on a beach or landscape background, where reflections, shadows, transparencies, the intensity of the light and the color transfigure the image and give value to themes in itself inconsequential.

Some critics consider these works a cross between the French impressionists and the English watercolorists.
