‘It will come as a surprise to many people that Malta has been so prolifically painted throughout the centuries. Even the author, when he started collecting names of artists and photographs of their Malta views, thought he would publish a small book on the subject when he reached a total of fifty artists. As the work progressed, the target grew to 100, then 150 and finally ended up a little short of 600.’
This is a surprising book which will give great pleasure to all who know and love Malta, and will serve for others as an introduction to the beauty of the Islands.
The collection of photographs represents a truly wonderful achievement, not only in terms of the quality and charm of the pictures but also of the author’s tremendous dedication to the subject over a lifetime, both as a collector and connoisseur.
His research has resulted in a most interesting work which will enthuse both art lovers and historians.
The quality of the book speaks for itself, and there is little doubt that here is one of those rare works of a lifetime which will bring joy and inspiration to many.
