Joaquín Sorolla - Agustín Otermín [1892]

This is a portrait of Asturian painter Agustín Otermín. He was an outstanding artist who, nevertheless, gave up painting before reaching maturity. The picture is horizontal in form, a frequent formant in many of Sorolla’s portraits. It seems that, in this way, the artist wanted to show his sitters in their surroundings, instead of merely portraying their figures.
