Canaletto London

This 30 meter painting of London and the river Thames was done by the Italian painter Canaletto for Prince Lobkowitz in 1747. It is part of the private collection of Prince William Lobkowitz in his family home in Prague. It is on loan for the celebration of the Diamond Jubilee in London as it shows the great pageant on the Thames river. On Sunday thousands of boats will escort the Royal barge down the Thames from Chelsea to the Tower.

St-Paul dominates the city in this painting of 1747.

  1. That is one great art there. And it is also really big for its size. It is really rich in details and lovely colors were used for it. I could also find this paints at Painters London for the best price offered.
