Clotilde sitting on a sofa

Clotilde sentada en el sofá

1910

Oil on canvas

180 x 110 cm

Inv. 900

Clotilde del Castillo was a frequent source of inspiration for Sorolla. He showed her in different formats, albeit always full of affection and admiration. In some instances, she appears as an industrious woman, in others as a mother accompanying her children.

This is the most elegant portrait of Clotilde del Castillo. She appears as a refined lady, a faithful reflection of the social status achieved and, by extension, a mirror of her husband’s artistic success.

Sorolla references John Singer Sargent’s portraits of high society. The elevated point-of-view used in the composition seems to be designed for the location in the lounge at Sorolla’s home, to be viewed from the upper landing on the main staircase.
