The Siege of Malta: Siege and bombardment of Saint Elmo, 27 May 1565

Matteo Perez d'Aleccio

This is the second of eight pictures commemorating the Siege of Malta in 1565. The canvases bear the cipher of Charles I on the reverse indicating that they were once in his collection. The set as a whole is a version of the larger series still in place in the Council Chamber of the Grand Master's Palace in Valletta. It records the siege and bombardment of St Elmo, on 27 May, with the Turkish camp at Marsa. Taken from the view-point of the Turkish base camp at Marsa, it shows the formation of the Turkish batteries round St Elmo. Mustapha Pasha wished to capture this first in order to gain the harbour of Marsamucetto, and thus provide safe anchorage for his fleet.
