Malta. Valetto Harbour Painting by Ivan Aivazovsky
Malta. Valetto Harbour.
This is another beautiful seascape picture painted oil on canvas by Aivazovsky
in 1844, when Malta under the British rule and its capital Valetta was
a ‘freeport’ very much like Aden and Singapore. In the calm
seashore there are some people enjoying the sight and a boatload of people
is about to enter the water. Large ships laden with goods from England
made calls on this seaport everyday. This beautiful painting is at The
Russian Museum at St. Petersburg.
