Painted in Biarritz in 1906, the present work depicts Sorolla's two daughters: María aged sixteen holding the parasol, with Elena aged eleven. Sorolla's stay there with his family followed his success in Paris, where he held his first one-man show of some four hundred and fifty works at the Galerie Georges Petit from 11 June until 10 July.
The climate, the clientele and the busy-ness of Biarritz dictated a different approach for Sorolla to that of the Mediterranean. Working all day on the beach, his output there was distinguished by more small format sketches rather than large canvases, possibly because the sheer number of beachgoers made it more difficult to compose a large painting, or perhaps as his response to the more variable Atlantic light. The works he painted there too are more measured. Rather than depicting the antics of young children frolicking on the beach, or fishermen working, Sorolla depicted elegantly dressed figures strolling along the shore. Often family members - as in the present example - Maria's pose in the present work is notably similar to Sorolla's depiction of her, parasol aloft, as she leads the way in the Lighthouse Walk at Biarritz painted the same summer (fig. 1).
