In addition to actual views, Canaletto also painted imaginary ones (he called them vedute ideate). Many date to the early 1740s, when he visited the mainland with his nephew Bernardo Bellotto (1722–1780), who also excelled at view painting. The beauty of these pictures—and this is one of the finest—resides in the abstract design, quality of light, and combination of buildings. Unlike in Canaletto’s conventional views, in this land- and seascape none of the churches, columns, or other structures are identifiable.

  • Poster (canvas material): The poster is a UV printed flat canvas with a nice surface texture. Please keep in mind, that depending on the size of the canvas poster print we add a white margin 2-6cm round about the work of art to facilitate the framing with a custom frame.
  • Acrylic glass print (with real glass coating): An acrylic glass print, often referred to as a plexiglass print, changes the original work of art into magnificient décor. Your work of art will be manufactured with the help of state-of-the-art UV direct print technology. The great benefit of a plexiglass art print is that contrasts and minor details become visible because of the very subtle tonal gradation of the picture.
  • Canvas print: A canvas print, which should not be mistaken with an artwork painted on a canvas, is an image printed on a UV direct printing machine. What is more, canvas creates a attractive and pleasing ambience. Canvas prints are relatively low in weight. This means, it is quite simple to hang your Canvas print without additional wall-mounts. Because of thatcanvas prints are suitable for all types of walls.
  • Aluminium dibond print: An Aluminium Dibond print is a print material with a true depth effect, which makes a fashionable impression by having a surface , which is not reflective. For our Aluminium Dibond print, we print the artwork onto the aluminium composite surface. The white & bright parts of the original artwork shine with a silky gloss but without the glare.
