The year 2022 marks the 300th anniversary. Bernardo Bellotto’s birthday. Canaletto (1722 – 1780).
To this day, Canaletto’s views are fascinating as an homage to the desire for vision and the sense of history. Thus, the historical ensemble of Pirna can still be experienced in essential aspects, as the painter portrayed it.
In the special exhibition of the City Museum, Canaletto’s artistic work will be experienced through exemplary works. Exhibits from the City Museum’s graphic collection are on display, including Canaletto’s own large-format etchings of his Pirna views.
