José Mongrell is regarded as one of the foremost Sorollistas, the group of Spanish artists inspired by the light and subjects of Valencian painter Joaquín Sorolla (1863-1923). Sharing Sorolla's delight in recording everyday life by the sea, Mongrell nevertheless developed his own distinct style. His paintings display the strong attention to form and composition that he learned from his teachers Pinazo and Domingo.
