Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti's second episode of 'Rewind: Great Exhibitions Revisited', a video series that recalls some of the organisation's major exhibitions, has recently launched.

This time the focus is on the exhibition which took place back in 2010, titled 'Edward Caruana Dingli (1876-1950): Portraits, Views and Folkloristic Scenes', held at the Grandmaster's Palace in Valletta. It showcased around 250 paintings by Caruana Dingli, sourced from private and public collections, both local and foreign. He is best known for his portraiture representing the upper echelons of society, and his nostalgic scenes of Maltese Life. 

The episode features researcher Nadine Debattista who speaks about her research process and her contribution to the exhibition, while Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti CEO and Creative Director, Michael Lowell, talks about the process of setting up the exhibition.
