Palazzo Falson, Mdina
The first in a new series of exhibitions that moves away from the examination of objects for their type and function, and explores concepts and their manifestation in art, the exhibition The Devil of the Brush opened to the public on 16th December 2017.
The exhibition celebrated speed and virtuosity and explored the exciting dynamics between artistic invention and technical brilliance through paintings, statuary, drawings, modelli and bozzetti executed by the major protagonists of Maltese art between 1650 and 2000.
The Palazzo Falson exhibition was organised in collaboration with Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti and guest curated by Prof. Keith Sciberras, head of the Department of Art and Art History at the University of Malta.
