The Young Yachtsman is a breathtaking work by Joaquín Sorolla y Bastida. Throughout his life, the artist explored many subjects, from the more Academic embraced historical and mythological genres to artworks that are more akin to Manet’s observations of Paris. The difference is that Sorolla’s most remarkable pieces were painted in Valencia. His work at the beginning of the 19th century became one of the most personal oeuvres of Modern painting. In The Young Yachtsman, the viewer is presented with a young boy playing with a boat on a vivid and moving sea.
Having his upbringing in a family of artisans, the young Joaquín had his first contact with art education in a school of artisans, where he had drawing classes. When he was 15 years old, Sorolla entered the Escuela de Bellas Artes de San Carlos. Every year the young artist showed an improvement, and when he had achieved a certain work quality, his teachers instructed him to send his paintings to art contests. His early works consisted of seascapes, and even though he participated in some events, his first pictures didn’t gather much attention. After serving the military, Sorolla y Batisda started applying for many grants. He won one from the Spanish Academy, which allowed him to complete his education in Rome. There, the classes of Francisco Pradilla Ortiz were fundamental for his artistic development.
Having this opportunity to go to another country, Sorolla decided to use his grant money to travel around Italy. There, he got closely acquainted with the artworks of the Old Masters. Taken by the country’s sights, he also focused on landscape painting, which significantly influenced his late and mature work. Returning to Spain, he married and settled in Valencia and Madrid, going to the capital to submit his work to international events. Eventually, he was exhibiting all around Europe and also had an excellent reception in the United States.
The Young Yachtsman is a beautiful oil painting created in 1909 and done on a large scale measuring 100 cm x 110 cm (39.3 x 43.3 in), something usual for the artist. It is yet another showcase in his mastery of oil painting techniques. In the center of the composition, the viewer can see a naked young boy playing with a small boat. Sorolla employed his drawing skills to sharply grasp the figure’s anatomy while still using a gestural style. Surrounding the boy is one of the most beautiful and robust motifs of his work, the sea, done with fast strokes and rendering the water’s reflections flawlessly.
