Overview
More
Set between the thick fortification walls of Malta's capital city is a charmingly unique space whose interior is lined with a selection of Victor Pasmore's works - a British modern contemporary artist who played a definitive role in developing the art of abstraction in 20th century England and, subsequently, in Malta. If ever you could come across a space exclusively dedicated to one artist - a pivotal one, to say the least - then this would be it.

This proved to be a useful shelter after a thunderstorm deluged Valletta.I was more interested in its former use as a store for gunpowder than its use as an art gallery.
