Attributed to Canaletto (1697 - 1768)

Street scene

Museum number: P18

Curatorial note

This view of a street crossed by arches may possibly be based on reminiscences of the town of Chioggia, Italy or it may be an imaginary capriccio.

It is a somewhat inferior version (of unknown date) of a Canaletto drawing in the Art Institute of Chicago (collection number 1943.514).

Provenance help-art-provenance

Presented to Soane by Colonel (later Sir) Benjamin Charles Stephenson in December 1816 (correspondence in the Soane archive).
