August 1 through December 6, 2015
Although the Italian eighteenth-century artist Antonio Canaletto is best known for his luminous, sweeping views of the Grand Canal and Piazza San Marco, the Vedute, a portfolio of prints made in the early 1740s, reveal another side of Venice. These scenes are intimate in scale and contain an extraordinary variety of subject matter, encompassing both real and imaginary views, from urban portraits to bucolic landscapes. This exhibition presents the full range of Canaletto's Vedute project and celebrates the legacy of Adolph J. "Bucks" Weil, Class of 1935, an astute and generous collector, who over his lifetime amassed one of the most impressive collections of Old Master prints in the country.
This exhibition is organized by the Hood Museum of Art and the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama, and generously supported by the William Chase Grant 1919 Memorial Fund.
