Venice: An Exhibition of Drawings, Paintings and Prints
Venice was celebrated in this exhibition at The Fine Art Society, in which London’s oldest commercial gallery combined with Charles Beddington, Canaletto expert and Old Master specialist, and Hill-Stone Inc. from New York.
The exhibition included six of James McNeill Whistler’s Venice etchings and works by other major 19th century artists. This display was a postscript to the paintings and drawings of Venice or by Venetians brought together by Charles Beddington, altogether reflecting four centuries of art from the floating city. Paintings from renowned Italian painters such as Antonio Balestra, Antonio Canaletto, Luca Carlevarijs and Michele Marieschi among others were on show.
