No artist better captures the essence and allure of Venice than Giovanni Antonio Canal, better known as Canaletto. A remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawings and prints on display at London’s Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city he became a master at capturing. Cinema-goers visit the sites immortalised in Canaletto’s views – from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, and the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition, but an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city that inspired him.
