MUŻA loans works for Francesco Zahra exhibition at il-Ħaġar Museum

MUŻA is proud to temporarily loan works from the National Collection for an exhibition hosted by Il-Ħaġar Museum in Gozo. This landmark exhibition commemorates the 250th anniversary of the death of Francesco Zahra, one of the most influential Maltese artists of the mid-eighteenth century.

The exhibition offers a captivating exploration of Zahra’s artistic legacy. Born in 1710 in Senglea, Zahra was a leading protagonist of the Late Baroque art movement in Malta. His extensive body of work, characterized by a decorative appeal and theatrical manner inspired by the Italian settecento, left an indelible mark on the artistic landscape of Malta and Gozo.
