Recognising a Maltese artist

I had the opportunity to visit my native city, Cospicua, and saw the magnificent theological, poetical, romantic painting of the Immaculate Conception by Peter Paul Caruana, born in Valletta in 1794. Caruana studied in Rome under well-known professor Tommaso Minardi  in 1821. Minardi led the St Luke Academy that was situated at Palazzo Dori Pamphili, in Piazza Venezia.  Caruana at the age of 35 years, painted the titular painting of the Immaculate Conception. There in Rome, at this academy probably he met photographers and artists among whom one can mention Gioacchino Altrobelli and Pompeo Molins who were in Minardi’s circle. Unfortunately Caruana died at 58 in 1852 but his son Raphael continued his artistic vocation. At that time in Rome there was Pope Pius IX. I am writing so that the local authorities will show this important painting to tourists, not only during December but all the year round. One must visit this church at Cospicua and tours should be organised to see this important painting. After all, he was a Maltese national artist. We must show our Maltese artists’ works to the tourists. It must be a touristic attraction. I appreciate it if there are readers who know...

Oil hits two-year high on shutdown of pipeline

Oil prices jumped to their highest in more than two years yesterday after the shutdown of a North Sea pipeline knocked out significant supply from an already tightening market. World stocks took a break from a three-day rally. Brent crude futures, the global benchmark for oil prices, rose above $65 a barrel – their highest since mid-2015 – after Britain’s Forties pipeline was shut due to cracks as a cold snap sweeps the country. The Forties pipeline is important for the global oil market because the crude it carries normally sets the price of dated Brent, a benchmark used to price physical crude around the world and which underpins Brent futures. The shutdown comes as oil supply cuts by the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) have helped chip away an excess of inventories built up following a global supply glut which began to emerge in late 2014. United States crude oil futures were last 0.7 per cent higher at $58.41 a barrel. Prices of gas across Europe also soared following an explosion at Austria’s main gas transfer hub. Meanwhile, the MSCI index of world equities, which tracks stocks across 47 countries, was flat after posting three straight days of...
