A view of Dresden's Augustus Bridge over the Elbe, with the Hofkirche, after Bernardo Bellotto (c1721-80). His original painting, now in the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister, shows the Hofkirche under construction, covered in scaffolding. Bellotto was a nephew and pupil of Caneletto. He worked in Dresden from 1747 to 1758, during which time he often signed his paintings 'Bernardo Canaletto'.
