2019 | Official Colours of War Lecture

2019 | Official Colours of War Lecture

The Association of International Women (Malta) will be hosting the monthly lecture at the Royal Malta Yachtc Club on Thursday 24th January.

This month’s AIWM lecture is entitled: ‘The Official Colours of War’ and will be given by Caroline Miggiani. Caroline is a Maltese art historian with a special interest in the paintings of the WW2 artists as depictors of that war in Malta, and who were appointed by the British Government. Caroline has very recently published a book collating the works of Leslie Cole, a prolific artist of the genre, called “The Official Colours of War”. These paintings show the war scenes in a glorified light, rather than the realistic coverage we expect today from our photographic war correspondents, and were intended as a form of positive propaganda. Caroline has very kindly donated a copy of her book to AIWM. There will be raffle to win this book at the end of her presentation. Raffle tickets cost €3 (or €5 for two tickets), and can be bought on arrival. The proceeds from the raffle will go towards our 2019 charities.
