In spite of its Baroque tradition, Malta is not alien to Art Nouveau. As an island colony within the British empire yet in close proximity to Italy, Malta would have been subject to diverse influences although Italy's Stile Liberty remains a predominant influence. The three contributions in this book explore the direct and indirect impact of Art Nouveau in Malta. Decorative schemes in domestic settings, ironwork architecture and sculpture are also discussed as surviving examples and attest to the popularity of this style in Malta. This publication represents a first attempt at assessing Malta's Art Nouveau legacy through diverse artistic forms. It also includes a catalogue of select works from the Alphonse Mucha exhibition held by Heritage Malta in collaboration with the Mucha Foundation in 2011.
