Portrait of Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934) is an impressive artwork by the Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. Joaquín Sorolla became known for his realistic yet expressive works depicting the region of Valencia, showing fishers at work and people playing and interacting with the sea. Sorolla was also a very skilled portraitist. In Portrait of Santiago Ramon y Cajal, in which he depicted the Nobel prize winner physician, it's possible to perceive a more subtle and tonalist approach when compared to his famous beach scenes.
The Spanish painter entered the prestigious Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos when he was only fifteen. Before it, he studied as a locksmith apprentice and in the Escuela de Artesanos, where he had his first contact with lectures on drawing fundamentals. The young artist showed interest in drawing from the beginning of his studies, and through the recommendation of his master, he began to send his work to art contests. With time and through grants, he was capable of traveling abroad and studying the work from masters such as Goya and Velázquez.
In the 1880s, Sorolla received one of his best grants, one that allowed him to stay and travel through Italy and complete his studies in Rome. In the next decade, he returned to his homeland in the region of Valencia. There he lived for the rest of his life and went on to make some of his most stunning works. Even though Sorolla was deeply captivated by the landscape and felt that portrait painting limited his inventiveness, he proved himself a great portraitist as well. He had a penchant for depicting his family, but through commissions from patrons, he ended up painting important and political figures, such as Portrait of Mr. Taft, President of the United States, which he painted at the White House.
Portrait of Santiago Ramon y Cajal is a portrait painting with dimensions of 391 x 127 cm. Santiago Ramon, the famous neuroscientist, occupies the middle of the composition. He is sitting on an armchair, dressed in black. Some of the details on his clothes are white and a cold grey. Sorolla maintained the equilibrium for which his work is hailed, using visible brushstrokes and yet having a very detailed manner, as can be seen in the depiction of the veins on the hand or the surface of the skin in Santiago's face. The room where he is is half-lit, with his left side, where there's a door, being mostly dark, and the right side has some books and one of Santiago's famous drawings on the wall.
