Navigate Venice's iconic waterways in an exciting exhibition at the National Maritime Museum and see from up close the complete set of 24 Venetian views painted by Canaletto in the 1730s, on loan from Woburn Abbey.

Take in extraordinarily detailed portraits of a living city, including iconic landmarks such as Piazza San Marco and the Grand Canal, and explore Venice’s relationship to the water that flows through and surrounds the city.

Canaletto’s Venice Revisited will reassess Canaletto at the height of his career, looking beyond the broad views he is famous for to also closely examine the features that encapsulate the daily life of 18th century Venice through the eyes of a grand master.

Beyond the enduring and idealised views of the city the exhibition will also expand on the various social and environmental challenges that the city now faces due to the development of the cruise industry and the wider threat of climate change.
