An online conference on a set of recently restored Olof Gollcher paintings will be held on Thursday at 5 p.m. The event is organized as part of a collaborative effort between the Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum and the Association of Art History Students (HoASA).
During the lecture, Caroline Tonna, curator and project manager, will give an overview of Gollcher as an artist and his painting of landscapes and seas in the 1920s. The art historian and lecturer at the He University of Malta Charlene Vella will analyze Gollcher’s artistic technique, while Pierre Bugeja, chief curator at Prevarti, will explain the technical process of the restoration.
The restoration project was made possible thanks to funds obtained from the Fondation Groupe d’Action Majjistral as part of the LEADER 2014-2020 Program. The funding was made available through measure 1 of the Majjistral Action Group Foundation: restoration of assets and sites of artistic and cultural value.
The conference will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
The Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum is managed by Fondazzjoni Patrimonju Malti, a non-profit heritage foundation aimed at making our heritage known through museums, publications, exhibitions and events.
