Help the Wallace Collection Conserve Canaletto
Acquired by the 4th Marquess of Hertford, one of the great founders of the Wallace Collection, the two paintings are in desperate need of conservation. This cleaning is essential to reveal the impression of depth, the lively colours, and the finer details originally intended by the artist.
These two paintings have been hand-picked for the Wallace's campaign as part of a multi-year research and conservation project aimed to clean, restore and research all of their Venetian view paintings along with their frames, by Canaletto and his followers.
Crowdfunding through Art Happens means that every member of the public has the opportunity to preserve a piece of history.
