Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum: Sorolla and fashion
What was clothing like at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th? We are before a collaboration of the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza organized with the Sorolla Museum. An exhibition where we will see both the influence and passion of Joaquín Sorolla with fashion and vice versa. In this exhibition, seventy paintings from different museums and private collections are gathered. We can see works that have not been publicly exposed so far and accompanying the works of art we will see clothes, accessories, dresses and costumes of the time that evoke their female portraits made between the years 1890 and 1920.
What can you see in the exhibition at the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum ?

These changes in society were accompanied by a new mentality, much more open and hedonistic. The exhibition treats these pleasures in five sections:
