Canaletto's London Legacy

Dr Pat Hardy

Download the lecture video here

Canaletto's paintings have defined the look of mid-eighteenth century London, influencing future generations of landscape artists. His works are instantly recognisable for their polished translucent views of the city. 

This lecture will explore the extent to which Canaletto built upon the existing visual landscape of London and how much he adapted and innovated works by artists like Samuel Scott to produce stunning aspects of London.
