Canaletto: Perspective, Oil on Canvas, 1765. Giovanni Antonio Canal, known as Canaletto, painted many landscapes. I liked this painting because it is of the inside of a building, many of his paintings are from the outside. I like how this perspective curves and goes straight back. I also like how there is so much detail in the furthest point of the painting. Not only is this perspective done very beautifully but the color are so rich and gives so much meaning and that is why I liked this painting a lot.
