DESCRIPTION:  Born in 1697, Venetian landscape painter Giovanni Antonio Canal was better known as Canaletto. He was known for his grand scenes of the canals of Venice and many of his pictures were sold to Englishmen on their Grand Tour until the War of Austrian Succession led to a reduction in the number of British visitors. In 1755 Canaletto moved to London, during this time his paintings began to loose their fluidity causing critics to question their authenticity and the artist was compelled to give public painting demonstrations to refute these claims. He later retuned to Venice and continued to paint until his death in 1768. This image is located in the Narodni Gallery in Prague and depicts St. Paul's Cathedral with the busy Thames River in foreground.
