From May 26 until September 6 the Prado museum in Madrid will be showing an exhibition of works by Spanish painter Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923). During that time the dark rooms of the museum will be filled with the light, water and colour of the Mediterranean, with the inmense mastery of his craft and with the taste of salt that the waves will leave in the mouths of visitors. I don't know how well known Sorolla is outside his country, so here's some samples of his work.
I need to tell the world aboutGatochy's photostream at Flickr. She has uploaded quite a few albums with the most gorgeous images of different kinds: photography, advertising, paintings, vintage illustration and magazine covers... Visual time travelling at its best.
