The twenty-four views of Venice by Canaletto at Woburn are his largest and most important series of paintings. Commissioned by the Duke of Bedford in 1730, they have been kept at Woburn since 1792. This book, which accompanies the unique exhibition of the paintings at the Holburne Museum, Bath, is the first to be published about them.

The background to this extraordinary collection is described in an initial essay by a leading expert on the painter, Charles Beddington. Each painting is then discussed in detail, and in particular the connection to Canaletto's only surviving sketchbook. Illustrated with specially commissioned photographs and many details, this is one of the richest books on Canaletto's Venice yet produced.
