Spanish Art in Baroque Malta-seminar 6Nov2014 (1)The study of Spanish art in Malta has been increasingly attracting attention over the past years. Spanish art works have been identified, studied and published. The patronage of Spanish art, including imports, is also better known. This seminar seeks to stake stock of our knowledge of Spanish art in baroque Malta and explore potential new research paths on the subject. It also seeks to connect participating researchers and scholars working in this field.

Speakers include Sandro Debono (National Museum of Fine Arts, Heritage Malta); Antonio Espinosa Rodriguez (Curator Emeritus, National Museum of Fine Arts, Heritage Malta); Dr. Andres Ubeda (Head Curator for Italian and French 17th century paintings, Museo Nacional del Prado); Dr. William Zammit (Senior Lecturer, Faculty of Media and Knowledge Sciences, University of Malta); Dr. Marjorie Trusted (Senior Curator of Sculpture, Victoria and Albert Museum, London); Fr. Edgar Vella (Curator, Cathedral Museum, Mdina) and Dr. Luis Arciniega (History of Art Department, University of Valencia).
