Canaletto, the great Venetian landscape painter, captures the magnetic attraction of a city that has remained in the global imagination and has remained an immense draw for visitors for centuries. His 1730 painting The Entrance to the Grand Canal, Venice, is a monumental reproduction of a view of the Grand Canal, the most attractive destination for eighteenth pleasure-seekers. Although in a period of rapid decline, the medieval city-state was still a world of pride, pomp, and ceremony. The marble palaces that line the Grand Canal are testament to the glory of what was once the trade capital of the world. For centuries Venice held a monopoly over the spice trade yet by the eighteenth century the city had slid into a spiral of decadence and nostalgia. Consoling themselves in parties, the Venetian way of life drew a wealth of aristocratic globe trotters on what was known then at the Grand Tour. Before the French Revolution any aristocrat worth their salt would spend a fair amount of time taking in the city, enjoying both the culture and the debauchery.
Canaletto's The Entrance to the Grand Canal, Venice perfectly captures the mood of a city contrastingly both continuously populated by visitors and abandoned by its citizens. Arguably, Canaletto's cityscapes helped to raise Venice to the auspicious position of the first ever tourist destination. Reproductions of Canaletto's cityscapes were readily available in multiples for visiting aristocrats to send home during their visits. His works were akin to the ubiquitous tourist photograph — physical proof that you had been there and an elegant reminder of the decadence you had experienced there. A testament to the international popularity of Canaletto's prodigious output is the fact that hundreds of his cityscapes exist in private collections around England yet only three can be found in Venice itself, the city of Canaletto's birth.
