After Giovanni Antonio Canal, called Canaletto
VENICE, A VIEW OF THE GRAND CANAL LOOKING EAST FROM THE CAMPO DI S. VIO
oil on canvas


This painting is a reduced copy after the original painting on copper (46 x 62.5 cm.) by Canaletto, which has always been in the collection of the Earls of Leicester at Holkham Hall, along with a pendant depicting the 'Rialto Bridge from the South'.1 The style and use of copper as a support for these paintings indicate that they are works of the late 1720s. Canaletto repeated this particular view in at least 9 other paintings, with minor differences in the viewpoint and the position of the boats and staffage.

Holkham Hall was designed around the collection amassed by the first Earl of Leicester, Thomas Coke (1697–1759), during his Grand Tour of Italy in the first decade of the 18th century. The house and its contents have remained largely untouched ever since.
