The Queen's Gallery's big exhibition this year is an absolute corker, gathering together some of Canaletto's greatest paintings, drawings and prints of Venice.

The works were added to the Royal Collection by George III in 1762, along with the rest of Jospeh Smith's collection (Canaletto's agent).

The exhibition also includes works by other Venetian artists including Sebastiano, Marco Ricci, Francesco Zuccarelli, Rosalba Carriera, Pietro Longhi and Giovanni Battista Piazzetta, offering the viewer some remarkable views of 18th-century Venice from the splendours of the Grand Canal, to St Mark's Square and its many festivals and carnivals.
