ANDALUSIAN GARDEN IN MADRID

 

As many other painters in late XIXth and early XXth centuries, Joaquín Sorolla designed and built his own gardens by his residential home in Madrid. They were set up in three steps between 1911 and 1917 and designed following the huge influence of those called 'hispano-árabes' linked to the Alhambra ones and also to the J.C.N. Forestier new desing for Parque María Luisa in Seville. In Museo Sorolla's we can find a mediterranean garden dressed with coloured tiles, water canals, fountains, ponds and classical and modern statues. The three garden rooms it's divided were constructed at different times in a 'L' shape. Despite of that they form a whole where visitors can see the unity that must prevail in every garden. Today, Sorolla gardens we can find at the heart of a big city like Madrid are a very interesting cultural option for both locals an visitors not only because the gardens but to admire the outstanding ligth of his paintings.

    No tenía ni idea de que hubiese semejante espacio en Madrid... Desde luego, la próxima vez que vaya, no me lo pierdo.
