Winston Hassall - Malta Playing Arts

Winston Hassall

On a fine, sunny morning, many Borg, Camilleri, … are milling around town. Five -shaped national flags wave to the viewer in front of the President of Malta’s office with its striking wrap-around balcony (gallarija) on Republic Street in the capital of Valletta (detail of acrylics, original 38x45cm, for the complete painting →photo collage of 5), which the Order of St John called in Italian Città Umilissima or Most humble City (for Valletta read also Jackand Jack).
