Catalogue Note

This painting follows Canaletto's composition in the Royal Collection at Windsor Castle, London. 1 The Windsor picture was one of the fourteen paintings by Canaletto from the collection of John Smith to be engraved by Antonio Visentini and published in 1735, thus providing a terminus ante quem for the design.
