Paintings (1732-34)
by CANALETTO

It was McSwiney and above all Smith who stimulated Canaletto to specialize in wieldy topographical views for the tourist market and Canaletto became a much sought-after artist in this genre. He was so successful in fact that in the course of the 1730s, assisted by his pupils, he must have produced hundreds and perhaps even more views, occasionally in series of twenty or more.
