Celebrating Britain

Canaletto, Hogarth and Patriotism

Jacqueline Riding, Steven Parissien, Pat Hardy, Oliver Cox

Canaletto's time in mid-Georgian Britain has received much scholarly attention in the past, but this book places his work in a broader political and social context, linking his paintings and drawings, as well as those of William Hogarth, with the growing sense of assurance and mission which the British nation was then beginning to display.

Canaletto's time in Mid-Georgian Britain has received much scholarly attention in the past. But this book places his work in a broader political and social context, linking his paintings and drawings with a growing sense of assurance and mission which the British nation was beginning to display - perhaps best represented by the works of William Hogarth.
