Canaletto (Giovanni Antonio Canal, 1697-1768) lived in London from 1746 to 1756, the early part coinciding with the building of Westminster Bridge, which was only the second bridge to be built in the metropolis. This view of London was taken from under one of the arches of the bridge, with the wooden buttressing in place, three years before the bridge opened. The original oil is in the Duke of Northumberland's collection in Syon House. Canaletto also painted both Sion House and the Duke's London home, Northumberland House. A fine panorama of London from the River.
