Artist Edward Caruana Dingli (Malta)

  1. 1. Born into an artistic family in Valletta (Malta) in 1876. Edward Caruana Dingli had a knack for drawing from a very young age. In 1913, he gave up his military service to fulfil his long standing ambition of becoming a full-time artist. He was well connected with the Maltese elite as well as the British government in Malta, and as a result had no problem finding work. His talent and dedication saw him rise to the top in his field, and he in fact led the artistic scene in Malta through the first half of the 20th century. Artistically, he was direct heir to Giuseppe Cali, his friend and mentor, and passed the baton on to his own students at the Malta Government School of Art. He continued painting until his death in 1950. Nacido en una familia de artistas en La Valetta (Malta), en 1876. Edward Caruana Dingli tenía un don para el dibujo desde una edad muy joven. En 1913, renunció al servicio militar para cumplir su ambición de muchos años de convertirse en artista a jornada completa. Estaba bien conectado con la élite de Malta, así como el gobierno británico de allí, y como resultado, no tuvo ningún problema para encontrar trabajo. Su talento y dedicación lo llevaron a la cima en su campo, y de hecho en la escena artística durante la primera mitad del siglo XX. Artísticamente, era heredero directo de Giuseppe Cali, su amigo y mentor, y pasó la batuta a sus propios estudiantes de la Escuela de Arte del Gobierno de Malta. Continuó pintando hasta su muerte en 1950.
