Writer and narrator

Leah Kharibian is an independent art historian and writer. She was the author of Velázquez (2006), a souvenir book of the exhibition and The National Gallery Pocket Collection (2008).

Canaletto’s views of 18th-century Venice are famous the world over. But he and his talented rivals did not simply paint what they saw; they vied to impress their patrons with original details and startling perspectives.

This close look at the pleasures and spectacles enjoyed by visitors on the Grand Tour shows how the expectations and aspirations of foreign collectors shaped an export market for pictures that still define Venice today.

Filmed on location in Venice, this DVD explains how 18th-century Venetian artists competed for the art market. It also includes two bonus films on contemporary British painters of cityscapes, Clive Head and Ben Johnson.
