Giuseppe Galea, The Academic Years – Rome 1933-1938
October 7, 2017 @ 09:30 - October 31, 2017 @ 17:00
As a prelude to the Mdina Biennale this coming November, an exhibition of drawings by Giuseppe Galea will be held at the Cathedral Museum in Mdina from Saturday, 7th of October until Tuesday, 31st of October 2017. This exhibition will be showcasing many of his intriguing drawings of the human figure.
The Maltese artist Giuseppe Galea is arguably one of Malta’s finest decorators as can be demonstrated by his impressive portfolio. This exhibition highlights the life drawings he undertook when in Rome. He studied life drawing under the tutelage of the great Maltese sculptor Antonio Sciortino and these drawings are specifically from this period. These works in particular have been selected to show the artist’s skill and technique. His drawings are undoubtedly classical in their manner and reveal the keen eye for detail that the artist possessed.
This side of the artist, which is sadly neglected, will be showcased under the supervision of the Mdina Cathedral APS Contemporary Art Biennale 2017 artistic director Dr. Giuseppe Schembri Bonaci.
