Public lecture by Mr Lawrence Pavia on artists ‘Julian Trevelyan and Mary Fedden: Their interpretation of Malta's Landscape.'
Mr Pavia shall provide some basic information as to how the couple came to Malta and their interpretation of Malta as seen through the eyes of a foreigner, what influenced them most, their contacts with local artists, and whether they actually left any lasting influence on Malta's art.
Mr Pavia has been a Chartered Insurance Broker by profession for the last 30 years. His passion for art and history has led him to read for a degree in History of Art, which led him to research the interpretation of Malta's landscape by British artists in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, for his MA. He is an avid collector of works of art, and he also paints and has recently held a solo exhibition at San Anton Palace.
The lecture will be held on Tuesday 17 May 2011 at 6:00pm at Palazzo Santa Sophia (a few doors down from Palazzo Falson), Mdina. Bookings are not required as seats will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
