Vincent Malta


Vincent Malta (1922-2015) was a New York artist who maintained a studio and gallery in Brooklyn and taught as a professor at the Arts Students League of New York for 35 years. He is noted in the third volume of Who Was Who In American Art, 1564-1975: 400 Years of Artists in America.
In 1978, Marlene Schiller wrote an article published in American Artist titled “Vincent Malta: Return to the Art Spirit.” The article features the artist, his painting style, and his artworks. It discusses the opinions of Stewart Klonis, Executive Director of the Art Students League, and painter Everett Raymond Kinstler about Malta’s works. The influence of such artists as Bessie Potter Vonnoh and Wayman Adams in Malta’s life as a painter is also cited.
In October of 2005, The New York Times published an article about Malta titled “Success Finally Catches Up With an Artist.” The article discusses how, after nearly two decades of trying to get his career off the canvas, Malta finally cultivated a small, but avid, following. The article further discusses how Malta’s works are influenced by Picasso and the 17th-century painters Johannes Vermeer and Peter Paul Rubens.
