STAR of the show at Sotheby’s major art auction in the UK is Valencia-born painter Sorolla’s Boats on the beach (Barcas en la playa) which is expected to attract bids averaging a million euros.
On November 24, Sotheby’s will open its doors to art fans with the cash to shell out on original paintings of global renown.
This year, the auction intends to concentrate on 19th-century European painting.
And Sorolla, whose work spanned the end of the 1800s through to the early 20th century, was highly-acclaimed for his late Romantic paintings that depicted simple scenes of local life in his home province.
