Exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace
Friday, 19 May – Sunday, 12 Nov 2017
The Royal Collection contains the world’s largest collection of works by Canaletto (1697-1768). Through over 200 paintings, drawings and prints, Canaletto & the Art of Venice explores the work of Venice’s most famous view-painter alongside that of his contemporaries, including Sebastiano and Marco Ricci, Rosalba Carriera and Francesco Zuccarelli. This spectacular selection of eighteenth-century Venetian art captures the essence and allure of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, from the splendours of the Grand Canal and St Mark’s Square to its festivals, theatre and masked carnival.
