A real nice, large, hard cover retrospective from the Spanish master. Pretty hard to compare photos to the actual paintings, as usual but this book does a better than average job color correcting each individual plate. This is a big, thick book with quite a bit of text. There is at least one painting on each spread, so not totally disappointing, but I wish there were more and that they were larger plates. 
BUT still, Sorolla is the man and there was no way I wasnt going to get this comprehensive over-view of his life and work.
Good lord. Its already out of print and super expensive. What the heck!
