Abstract: Joannes Gennadius 'was born in Athens in 1844, the son of the erudite Georgios Gennadius and Artemis Benizelou, studied at the English-language Protestant College ofMalta and the Lyceum of Christos Vaphas in Athens and then sought a commercial career in London'. I Joannes's father died in 1854, when Joannes was ten years old. At this point in his life,Joannes was taken under the custody of John Henry Hill (1791 -1882), an American missionary who ensured that the young Joannes received an excellent educational formation at the Protestant College of Malta. This article describes the diverse landscapes which the artist painted in watercolour mostly of the Grand Harbour area and Valletta
