Circle of Giovanni Antonio Canal, called Canaletto
VENICE, THE MOLO LOOKING WEST WITH THE PALAZZO DUCALE AND SANTA MARIA DELLA SALUTE

Provenance

By descent in the collection of the present owner's family since at least the 19th century.

Catalogue Note

The composition is closely based upon an original picture by Canaletto recorded by Constable and Links in the Spencer Loch collection in London, and now in a private collection.1

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.

1 W.G. Constable and J.G. Links, Canaletto, Oxford 1989, vol. II, pp. 229–30, no. 30, and Supplement, London 1998, p. 10, no. 93, reproduced pl. 232.
