National Museum of Fine Arts (Valletta)


The National Museum of Fine Arts presents a multifaceted overview of art and artistic expression in Malta from the late medieval period to the contemporary. Highlights from the collection on display include paintings by local and international artists, precious Maltese silverware, statuary in marble bronze and wood, fine furniture items and splendid maiolica pieces. Highlights include works by William Turner and Albert Bierstadt.

The architecture of the building is an important example of the mid-eighteenth century late baroque style in Malta boasting a fine main staircase. The palace is built in the Italiante architectural style having a central courtyard through which the surrounding halls get light and air. The large piano nobile halls house works of art from the early renaissance to the high baroque with a focus on the corpus of works by the Italian baroque painter Mattia Preti. Some of the ground floor halls still have their ceiling decorated with late eighteenth century decorative schemes and display works ranging from the 18th century to modern times.
