Octave Uzanne Canaletto


Аннотация к книге Octave Uzanne Canaletto. His main purchasers were British aristocracy because his views reminded them of their Grand Tour. Influenced by Giovanni Panini, he is specialised in vedute (views) of Venice, his birth place. Canaletto spent ten years in England.
