During the age of the Grand Tour new buildings were going up, and old buildings were falling down in Venice. Join Deborah Howard, Professor Emerita of Architectural History at the University of Cambridge, as she examines the architecture of Venice as seen in Canaletto’s paintings, and discuss the ways in which the artist transformed what he saw for pictorial reasons.
