Joaquin Sorolla – Sewing sails. Oil on canvas. 222 x 300 cm
The magnificent paintings of Sewer Sails were written by the gifted master of the brush Joaquin Sorolla. It is written in the genre of impressionism, realism and luminism.
The artist was a big worker and painted paintings from morning to late evening. He paid special attention to the work on the life of fishermen and marine plots. The picture depicts the work of a simple village family. Men and women work painstakingly to fix the sail.
Art work is done in bright, sunny colors, conveying a cheerful mood. It is filled with light, life, air! The canvas is saturated with summer, warm, radiant flowers, diluted with rainbow paints and halftones. Impressionism simply shines with the artist’s radiant rainbow of inspiration!
A huge white fabric is spread throughout the length of the room, apparently damaged and worn out. Women carefully put on the cloth under the mentoring of men who give them housekeeping tips. Work on sewing sails takes place on a veranda that all frags with flowers. Sunlight penetrating the room brings joy to people, ennobling their work. This sail “feeds” the family. Male miners go to sea for fishing.
The artist painted a picture with a wide brush. He expressed a warm, homely, friendly atmosphere in her, where all family members are united in love and care for the house. Women are good housewives, very hardworking. They love their husbands and help them in their work. Fixing a sail gives people great pleasure.
The picture gives joy, optimism, charges with favorable energy. It helps in the treatment of depression, since the extraordinary brightness of its flowers gives a good mood and improves the psycho-emotional background. An artistic masterpiece will look great in the interior of the living room, bedroom, work room and give beauty.
