    Exhibited
    London, Grafton Galleries, Exhibition of Paintings by Señor Sorolla y Bastida, May-July, 1908, inventory no.332

    The present lot is a wonderful new discovery, painted during the few days that Sorolla spent working in San Sebastian in September of 1906.

    Sorolla produced a series of small-scale coastal and beach studies, populated with elegantly dressed sunbathers, beach huts and boats, during his stay in Biarritz in the summer of 1906.1 The family then visited San Sebastian, primarily for Maria, Sorolla's eldest daughter, to visit a doctor. The present lot was painted during those few days.

    We are grateful to Blanca Pons-Sorolla for confirming the attribution to Joaquin Sorolla. The work will be included in Blanca Pons-Sorolla's catalogue under inventory number BPS 1481.
