Canaletto Painted London Whilst Residing In Soho

Location: Beak Street, W1R

Description: There have been many great painters associated with London but none more so than Giovanni Antonio Canal (or Canaletto).

This Venetian-born artist painted some of the finest views of London, all the while residing on Beak Street in Soho between 1746 and 1755.

Giovanni Antonio Canale was born in October 1697 and baptized in the church of San Lio. He later became known as Canaletto, probably to distinguish him from his father Bernardo Canale, who was also an artist. He died of a fever aged 71, on April 10, 1768. He was buried in the church of San Lio, where he had been baptized.
