Canaletto and the Art of Venice
BUY TICKETS 7.30pm Tuesday 26 September
ART FILM based on the exhibition at The Queen’s Gallery, Buckingham Palace
From one of the world’s largest art collections comes the remarkable story of Canaletto and the city he shared with millions through his art.
The remarkable group of over 200 paintings, drawing and prints on display offer unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries, and the city that Giovanni Antonio Canal captured so beautifully. The film also offers the chance to step inside two official royal residences – Buckingham Palaec and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and Joseph Smith, the man who introduced Canaletto to Britain.
Cinema-goers will embark on their very own 21st century Grand Tour, visiting the sites enjoyed by their 18th century counterparts and immortalised in Canaletto’s views – from the Rialto Bridge to the Piazza San Marco, from the Palazzo Ducale to the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo. Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetial history, this film is not only a wonderful way to see the exhibition but also an opportunity to get closer to Canaletto and the city which inspired him.
