The Giuseppe Galea Collection on Display at Il-Ħaġar Exhibition

Il-Ħaġar Museum is delighted to present a new temporary exhibition which will showcase for the first time a collection of designs prepared by one of Malta’s finest decorators, Giuseppe Galea, for Gozo’s Saint George’s Basilica.  Many of these designs have been donated to the Museum by the artist’s family, while others were acquired through sponsorship by Lombard Bank.  Galea studied art in Rome between 1933 and 1938, where he forged a deep friendship with Maltese master sculptor Antonio Sciortino under whose tutelage he studied life drawing. 

The Giuseppe Galea Collection will be inaugurated on Saturday 27 April 2024 at 19:30,by the Hon. Clint Camilleri, Minister for Gozo and Planning.
