Giovanni Antonio Canal, known as Canaletto, was born in Venice, the boy of your theatrical arena painter. He was very significant, famed for his specifically depicted and evocative views of the location (vedute). Canaletto's early pictures for local customers are his most accomplished: these carefully designed, specific, and atmospheric studies include 'The Stonemason's Lawn'. He discovered that providing formulaic paintings for visitors was very rewarding. These, still very skilled works, were made by him often in cooperation with an organised workshop. They often record the luxurious Venetian general population ceremonies, such as 'Regatta on the Grand Canal'.
