Pescadora Valenciana (Fisherwoman from Valencia) is a stunning picture by Spanish painter Joaquin Sorolla. Sorolla was one of the most admired Modern painters. Born in a moment when Spain wasn’t as prominent in the art scene as it was in the previous centuries, Sorolla brought attention once again with his captivating beach scenes. Pescadora Valenciana (Fisherwoman from Valencia) is a colorful portrait of a fisherwoman from Sorolla’s hometown, a Spanish area eternalized through his brush.
Joaquín Sorolla started his formal artistic training in the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos. Before entering the prestigious institution, he had classes in a local school for artisans, learning the drawing basics. Sorolla applied himself, and soon enough, his seascapes and other pictures were part of art contests. Since he had no patrons and wasn’t from a wealthy family, it was through grants and prizes that Sorolla was able to travel and complete his education abroad. He stayed a long time in Italy, where he went to many exhibiting spaces and got familiarized with the work of the Old Masters firsthand. Around this period, he started to dedicate greater focus to the landscape genre, which he called vistas.
At the beginning of the 1890s, after staying a significant time abroad, he decided to return to Valencia. Since then, Sorolla’s oeuvre took its last significant turn, becoming faithful documentation of life in Spain’s coastal region. People bathing, kids playing, fisherfolk at work, the sea itself; all became subjects of his pictures. His luminist style, which worked intimately with natural lighting, became more robust, his paintings soon became more colorful, with realistic color giving away to a more unrestrained and atmospheric use.
Pescadora Valenciana (Fisherwoman from Valencia) is an oil painting that is presently part of a private collection and measures 37 x 46 cm( 14.5 x 18.1 in). In the picture, it’s possible to see the “pescadora” in the foreground. Her face was portrayed with an ambiguous expression, which suggests concern, curiosity, or just fatigue. Her skin has a complexion that indicates someone working under the sun for many hours. The woman was painted mainly with an orange hue for her skin tone and is wearing white clothes, while the background was done with beautiful pinks, lilacs, and purples, suggesting she is watching the sunset.
