An amazing opportunity to experience some of the finest treasures of Venetian art history in Ultra HD 4k. Exhibition On Screen launches its fifth season at Cinema Nouveau with Canaletto & the Art of Venice, an immersive journey into the life and art of Venice's famous view-painter.

Guided by Royal Collection Trust curators and the world’s leading experts in Venetian history, the film takes viewers on a Grand Tour of Canaletto's Venice, visiting the iconic landmarks that inspired his work such as the Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale and the Church of Santi Giovanni e Paolo.

The film also steps inside two official royal residences - Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle – to learn more about the artist, and his wealthy patron the British merchant Joseph Smith. Smith sold most of his Canaletto collection to King George III in 1762 and this now forms part of the British Royal Collection, one of the biggest collections of Renaissance art in the world.

The remarkable group of over 200 Canaletto paintings, drawings and prints featured in the film offer an unparalleled insight into the artistry of Canaletto and his contemporaries. A must-see film for anybody with an interest in Renaissance art.
