Description

Antonio Canaletto, the great painter of Venetian views, was also a masterful etcher of his beloved hometown and the surrounding countryside. This work shows his expert skill and marvelous sense of touch with the etching needle, producing silvery tones that beautifully capture the play of light on water.
