The MSA is saddened by the passing of Harry Alden, MSA’s Gold Medal Awardee in 2013.

Alden stands out singularly as the person who in the 1960s introduced the hard-edge technique onto the local art scene and through his contribution both as an artist, as well as an art teacher, he made a name for himself within the mainstream of Maltese artists over the past sixty years.
