Christie’s to Auction Two Magnificent Masterpieces By Canaletto

Christie’s announced that they will offer two masterpiece views of Venice by Canaletto at the auction of Important Old Master and British Pictures on 2 December 2008 in London. Believed to have been commissioned in 1738 through the artist’s agent Consul Smith, whose own collection of the artist’s works was sold to King George III, the paintings have since passed by family descent and are offered for sale for the first time. The pictures will be on public exhibition at Christie’s London from 29 November to 2 December, and are expected to realise a combined total in excess of £7 million.
