In addition to producing easel paintings depicting city views such as this work, Bernardo Canal was an accomplished painter of theatrical scenery and opera sets. He was the father of famed vedute painter Giovanni Antonio Canal, called Canaletto (1697–1768). It was through practising alongside his father, especially in assisting him in scenery painting, that the young Canaletto learned the rudiments of draughtsmanship and perspective that would serve him so well in his view painting.
