Giovanni Antonio Canal (17 or 18 October 1697 — 19 April 1768) better known as Canaletto, was an I Italian painter of landscapes, or vedute — Views, of Venice. He was also an important etcher-print maker.
He was born in Venice as the son of the painter Bernardo Canal, hence his mononym Canaletto(“little Canal”), and Artemisia Barbieri.. Canaletto served his apprenticeship with his father and his brother. He began in his father’s occupation, that of a theatrical scene painter. Canaletto was inspired by the Roman vedutista G. P . Pannini, and started painting the daily life of the city and its people.
After returning from Rome in 1719, he began painting in his topographical style. His first known signed and dated work is Architectural Capriccio (1723, Milan, in a private collection). Studying with the older Lica Carlevariji , a moderately-talented painter of urban city scenes , rapidly became his master’s equal.
In 1725, the painter Alessandro Marchesini, who was also the buyer for the art collector-patron Steffano Conti had inquired about buying two more ‘views of Venice’, when the agent informed him to consider instead the work of “Antonio Canale… it is like Carlevaris, but you can see the sun shining in it.
