We are grateful to Charles Beddington, who has studied this picture at first hand, for suggesting that this painting is the work of an artist he has called the Bateman Master, a close associate or studio assistant of Canaletto's who painted versions of this composition among others for Lord Bateman in the 1730s. He plans to include the Bateman Master and other hands active in the Canaletto studio in a future article.
