Abstract: Emvin Cremona (1919-1987) was among the foremost Maltese painters of the twentieth century, soon becoming a formidable name in the fields of landscape, church decoration and, later, stamp-design and abstract painting. He developed extensively his initial encounters with Modernism in Rome in the light of his artistic development and also of subsequent dramatic circumstances in Malta. Following two decades of Impressionistic landscape painting and some of the first manifestations of abstraction in Malta, his art took a dramatic turn in 1960 in reaction to the grave politico-religious crisis that dominated events at the time. This artistic development will be the main subject of this paper.
