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.
A welcome cocktail is included.
