Bernardo Bellotto Paintings & Drawings - Art gallery

Bernardo was an Italian painter interested in urban landscapes. He was also a printmaker doing etching ( eg. Vedutes of European cities of Dresden, Vienna, Turin and Warsaw).His unique style was represented by elaborate portrayal of architecture and nature with scintillating light effects.

Though born in Venice he toured Rome and Florence. Later on being invited to Poland by its King August III he went to Dresden. The King wanted him to paint the beauties of Warsaw and Dresden which are now the only remnants to see of the pre-war scenes because the cities were totally destroyed in the bombings by Germans and Russians.

Empress Maria Theresa invited him to Vienna to paint the views of the city’s monuments. After the death of the Polish king Bernardo moved to St. Petersburg. He was again invited to Poland by its new King Stanislaw August Poniatowski to become the court painter in Warsaw. For the Royal Castle at Warsaw he painted the city’s scenes.

A number of his paintings are at Czartoryski Museum in Krakow, Poland and in Wilanow Palace in Warsaw. Some of the finest topographical works of Bernardo were bought by Catherine the Great: “The Old Market Square in Dresden”, “The New Market Square in Dresden”, “Pirna seen from the Right Bank of the Elbe”.

Some of his earlier works done while at Florence and Venice are : “View of the Villa Melzi d’ Eril”, “View of the Gazzada”, “Arno in Florence” and “Signoria Square in Florence”.


In Germany Bernardo was called Canaletto, and his paintings were referred to as Canaletto paintings.
