The Young Amphibians is a stunning painting by Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. Sorolla, who came from a low-income family, is now known as one of the most prestigious Spanish painters. He dedicated himself to a variety of themes throughout his life, such as mythological, historical, and even Orientalist painting. But it was in the Spanish settings, in Valencia's sunny land, where he made his most remarkable artworks. The Young Amphibians is an adorable piece. It shows a group of kids playing on the shore, done in the usually bright and hot palette of the master.
Sorolla, at only 15 years old, became a student of the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos. Before it, the Spaniard went through an introduction to craftsmanship techniques, in which he already had some drawing classes. This relation to artisans and their craft was respected by the painter throughout his whole life since his uncle, who raised him, was a locksmith. He completed his military service and then started to apply for grants. He received one that allowed him to study in the Spanish Academy of Rome, which allowed him to travel through Italy and contact many masterpieces from previous times. He also had great masters in Rome, which helped him gain confidence for his eventually personal and Modern manner.
By 1895, his subjects shifted, and he began to explore local and regional topics of his city. Spain's beaches were never pictured so accurately yet held a very colorful, free, and creative approach. From his Academic education, Sorolla rose out to be one of the remarkable Modern painters. The Young Amphibians is a large oil painting measuring 96.2 × 130.5 cm and belongs to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As it's usual in Sorolla's work, the horizon is higher than the viewer's eye level, giving the sensation that the scene is being witnessed firsthand. The artist focused on the activities of the figures and their relation to the sea. Almost at the center of the canvas, there is a girl who has her back to the public. She is wearing a pink dress and a bright yellow hat. The girl is looking at two boys that are playing on the shore, close to her. The sea occupies most of the picture, and with his intricate brushwork and color use, some spots give the idea of transparency, as the viewer can see glimpses of the ocean floor.
