"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy Birthday, Canaletto

Canaletto, The City Seen Through an Arch in Westminster Bridge, 1747

Giovanni Antonio Canal, commonly known as Canaletto, was born on this day in 1697.

I highly recommend the documentary Canaletto & the Art of Venice ...
