Canaletti 1697-1768
Exhibition Catalogs
Appears in exhibition catalog as entry no. 8
NOTE.--Antonio Canel, called Canaletto and Canaletti, a celebrated Venetian painter, of prospective views; born in 1697, died in 1768. His father was a scene painter, and Antonio was bred to the same branch of the profession, in which he acquired a promptness of invention and a facility of execution that afterwards enabled him to dash off many works in a short time. Aspiring to higher things, he went to Rome, where he passed some time in designing the grand remains of antiquity; after which he returned to Venice, where he chose as subjects the interior views of that city, which he treated with an intelligence of perspective and a conduct of aerial tint that are indeed most admirable and nearly approach illusion.
