Evocative vignettes of daily life set within perspectivelly rendered spaces that were realistic, if not necessarily real: the pictorial genius and creative intelligence of two famous artists of the European 18th century are at the center of this exhibit. Antonio Canal, called “Canaletto,” and his nephew, Bernardo Bellotto, knew how to transform the erstwhile peculiar genre of Venetian city view painting into an avant-garde fashion characterizing that period.
