Join Lucy Whitaker, Senior Curator of Paintings, as she explores Canaletto’s development in the context of Venetian art. This lecture will ask questions about Canaletto’s output which was for mostly foreign buyers, particularly the British, whereas most of his contemporaries were producing very different art for Venetian patrons. What did Canaletto learn from his contemporaries? How does Canaletto fit into this Venetian world? What characteristics does he share with his fellow Venetian artists?
