Highlighting works produced by Canaletto (Antonio Canal, 1697-1768) during his sojourns in England from 1746 to 1755 and reappraising his contribution to the development of British topographic art, this catalogue presents fine reproductions and individual discussions of 23 oils and 16 drawings by the celebrated Venetian painter (among them views of London, depictions of country estates, and imaginary landscapes) and of some 85 compositions by Samuel Scott, Paul Sandby, Thomas Rowlandson, J.M.W. Turner, Thomas Girtin and more than 20 other British artists of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Five essays review the activities of Italian painters in England in the early 1700s and closely examine Canaletto's British period, describing his patrons, his involvement in the print market, the socio-political significance of his urban imagery and his influence on several generations of British painters.
