Canaletto and the Art of Venice

Description

The Royal Collection has one of the largest and finest collections of Venetian art from the first half of the 18th century in existence. It includes paintings, prints and drawings by Canaletto, as well as those of his contemporaries such as Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Antonio Visentini, Francesco Zuccarelli and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. These artists were patronised by Consul Smith and their works were later purchased by George III.

This lavishly illustrated catalogue marks the first time that the rich holdings of eighteenth-century Venetian art in the Royal Collection will have been brought together, and focuses on presenting these extraordinary works against the background of the social and artistic networks of the period.

Whilst displaying and analysing the brilliant works of Canaletto, including his cityscapes, capriccios and paintings of architecture, this catalogue also discusses the intimate interior of Venetian life, explores the links between artists and the theatre in Venice at this time and looks at Venice as a centre for printmaking and book production.

29 x 23.5 cm.

Hardback.

392 pages with approximately 400 colour illustrations.
