Explore Giuseppe Calì's artistic evolution with Dr Mark Sagona.  

This masterclass entitled, 'Art Up Close: Giuseppe Calì (1846-1930): Romanticism between verismo and the eclectic', will give you a peek into the character and context of Calì's works. 

Giuseppe Calì  

A virtuoso by birth, Giuseppe Calì dominated Maltese art between 1880 and 1920. Throughout his career he proved his talent for creativity, expressiveness, and, most of all, speed of execution.

This is your opportunity to analyze his Neapolitan verismo works and how he eventually influenced the formation of the Baroque Revival ethos. 

 Giuseppe Calì

Giuseppe Calì was indeed a product of his own Romantic, eclectic times. Naples, his parent's birthplace, was an extraordinary influence on the young artist. He introduced the techniques he learnt here on his return to Malta, transforming the local artistic climate.  

Enjoy a presentation delivered by Dr Sagona, followed by a VIP tour of the MUŻA collection of Calì's unique pieces. Finally, immerse yourself in a historical and artistic discussion. 

Heritage Malta is offering this masterclass in collaboration with the University of Malta's Department of Art and Art History.
