Canaletto and Guardi, the two masters of Venice
Antonio Canal, also known as Canaletto, is the great promoter of the "veduta", a genre of landscape painting that takes the urban context as a subject in itself. The Musée Maillol in Paris is celebrating the Venetian master with a major show. Among his talented pupils was Francesco Guardi, who developed his own idiosyncratic style. Another exhibition at Musée Jacquemart-André shows the relationship between these two masters of Venice.
