Canaletto and the Art of Venice @ The Queen’s Gallery
This is an incredible exhibition and a once in a life-time chance to see the Queen's collection of Canalettos.
The Royal Collection contains the world's finest group of paintings, drawings and prints by Venice'smost famous view-painter, Canaletto (1697-1768). These works were bought by the young George III in 1762 from Canaletto's agent and dealer Joseph Smith, British Consul in Venice, along with the rest of Smith's huge collection.
