Sorolla traveled extensively across Spain researching the people, their costumes and each province’s quality of light! Archer M. Huntington commissioned the collection in 1911 for $150,000. Completed in 1920 the project filled seven years of Sorolla’s life. The murals were installed and the room opened to the public in 1926, three years after his death.
