 "Chico con Sombrero" by Sorolla. EFE


Madrid / The Spanish artist Joaquín Sorolla painted the painting in 1905 and has only been exhibited twice in a century, in Paris and Madrid. The third will be again in Madrid, in the Hall of Connaiseur.



The painting "Chico con sombrero, Jávea" has been part of a private collection for more than half a century.

This painting by the Valencian painter shows a boy in the foreground, who may be a fisherman or a peasant, and who appears sitting under a spot from which you can see Cabo de San Antonio.

It was presented for the first time to the public in an individual exhibition that dedicated the Gallery to him Georges Petit of Paris in 1906 and soon it was exposed in the Biosca Gallery of Madrid, where it was acquired in 1968.

Since then, it has been in private hands, according to a statement published in the Salon du Connaiseur fair, held in Madrid at the Sala Velázquez of the Wellington Hotel, from June 5 to 9.

The painting is part of the stand of Jorge Alcolea Antiques.

In addition to this piece, during the fair are also going to exhibit Mellerio Dits Meller, an incunabula Liber Chronicarum by Hatmann Schedel, one of the most important illustrated editions in the world by authors like Dürer, and a canvas painted by the surrealist painter Angels
