Italy's capital celebrates Canaletto by bringing toghether works from some of the most important museums and galleries in the world.
Giovanni Antonio Canal (Venezia 1697 - 1768)
On display, to celebrate the 250th anniversary of his death, the largest collection of works ever exhibited in Italy: 67 paintings, drawings and documents selected for their beauty and for their importance, illustrate his thinking and method, the technique and relationship with reality.
Outstanding among the masterpieces on display are two works from the Pinacoteca del Lingotto Giovanni e Marella Agnelli in Turin, the Grand Canal from the north, towards the Rialto bridge and The Grand Canal with Santa Maria della Carità, on display for the first time together with the manuscript from the Biblioteca statale di Lucca.
For the first time, outstandingly, the two parts of a single large canvas cut before 1802, depicting Chelsea from Battersea Reach, are brought together.
The left part comes from the National Trust property Blickling Hall in the UK; the right part, from the Museo Nacional De Bellas Artes de la Hanana, has been loaned for the first time by the government of Cuba.
Please note that, as from 16 July 2018, the work "The Bucintoro Returning to the Molo on Ascension Day", Venice 1729 ca., oil on canvas, will no longer be on display in the exhibition.
