Fine Arts Museum, Valencia, Spain

Bella Artes2

Just got back from a week’s holiday in Valencia.  Spent a few days in the city – did the football tour for my husband and son, and the Museo de Bella Artes for me!!  The beautiful baroque building, built 1683-1744, holds the second most important art collection in Spain.  This huge museum holds 13th-15th century iconography and golden age of 17th century baroque.  Also some 18th-19th century works from the Renaissance.

The museum also owns a great collection of 42 canvas and 11 drawings by Valencian born Joaquin Sorolla (1863-1923).
