Canaletto, real name Giovanni Antonio Canal (1697-1768).

The British consul, Joseph Smith, sent many of his works to Britain and as a result Canaletto was commissioned to paint English country houses and views of London. These included Warwick Castle (1748) and London: Whitehall and the Privy Garden (1751).
