2013 will mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the artist Mattia Preti (1613-1699), who spent forty years of his working life in Malta.
The Publishers, in collaboration with the Department of History of Art at the University of Malta, are working together to publish an outstanding book that discusses critically the artist’s oeuvre in Malta.
Research for this superb book is co-ordinated by Prof Keith Sciberras, who is also the author of the two critical essays which compose the first part of the book. The second part includes a detailed description of over 150 major Preti works, co-authored by Ms Jessica Borg. The book will include over 270 images of paintings most of which have been taken purposely for this publication by J.P. Borg.
