Looking at Canaletto

Description

If ever there was a painter who replays close and leisurely study, it is Canaletto. This companion to his works in the Royal Collection, which holds the largest collection of his paintings and drawings in the world, includes Canaletto's biography, shows his development as a draughtsman, painter and etcher, and introduces the artistic background against which his achievements as the arch-chronicler of eighteenth-century Venice should be seen.

Above all, in its many illustrations and details from his works, it is a book to encourage you to look and to enjoy - the lively yet elegant cityscapes, the brilliance of Canaletto's depiction of the reflections of light and water, the airy space of his vistas and panoramas, the wit and bustle of the figures in his paintings, and the melancholy beauty of his wash-drawings of the Venetian lagoon.

With 185 colour illustrations
