Canaletto: Two Paintings, One Perspective

FERENS ART GALLERY, Queen Victoria Square, Hull, HU1 3RA

20 Oct 2023 - 28 Jan 2024

FREE

Family Friendly

|

This exhibition shows two works by the world-renowned Italian artist Canaletto.

From the Royal Collection and the Ferens’ own collection, these works show Venice’s Grand Canal in all its splendour. Created 10 years apart, when seen together they show the development of an artist’s technique and reveal much about Venetian life in the 1700s.

A newly commissioned work by the Ferens’ latest artist in residence will be shown alongside the paintings, connecting the past to the present through the theme of climate change. Canaletto’s A Regatta on the Grand Canal marks the fifth and final loan of exceptional works of art from the Royal Collection to go on display at Ferens Art Gallery as part of the Masterpieces in Focus from the Royal Collection series.
