Throughout his career, Canaletto (1697-1768) painted his native city of Venice--its bridges and canals, the churches and the campi, and the beautiful buildings around Piazza San Marco. His contemporaries admired his accuracy and his ability to capture the effects of sunlight, but when we look closely, we see that the artist was more than a dispassionate observer. Filmed in Venice, this absorbing program explores how the artist produced his archetypal views of the city. Along with location footage, paintings from the National Gallery, which has one of the finest museum collections of Canaletto's work (The Stonemason's Yard, Venice: A Regatta on the Grand Canal), show us the remarkable city through Canaletto's eyes.
