Edward Caruana Dingli (1876-1950) - Portraits, Views and Folkloristic Scenes

From: 08/05/2010 To: 06/06/2010


Sir Augustus Bartolo (Foundation of International Studies, Valletta - National Collection Heritage Malta)Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti's much anticipated exhibition of works by Edward Caruana Dingli was held at The Palace in Valletta.  Showcasing some 250 paintings by this renowned Maltese artist, this exhibition brought together works sourced from private and public collections, both local and foreign.  Numerous visitors were mesmerised by the life-like portraits, and utterly charmed by the views and customs of early 20th century Malta as seen through the eyes of this exceptional artist.  Some visitors were surprised about how prolific Caruana Dingli was, and foreign guests delighted in learning about such a great Maltese artist.  Overall, this event was very well received, and the choice of Edward Caruana Dingli as the ‘subject’ for Patrimonju’s return to its prestigious exhibitions after a pause of eight years was by all means validated.  This exhibition was a great success, and a definite highlight in this year’s cultural calendar.
