This very attractive 18th century Italian school oil on board, depicting Venice customs house is circa 1740 and is unsigned, but in the Canaletto style. There has been some sympathetic restoration on the work, although we feel it does not detract from the beauty of the piece. The frame is very old; however, it may not be original to the painting. The work measures 19 in – 48 cm high by 23 in – 58 cm wide, with a depth of 3 in – 8 cm. Giovanni Antonio Canal (1697 – 1768), known as Canaletto, was born in Venice, the son of a theatrical scene painter. He was very influential, famed for his precisely depicted and evocative views of the city (vedute). Canaletto's early pictures for local patrons are his most accomplished: these carefully designed, individual, and atmospheric studies include 'The Stonemason's Yard'.
