Bernardo Bellotto

Bellotto, Bernardo (bĕrnärˈdō bāl-lôtˈtō) [key], 1720–80, Venetian architectural and landscape painter, also called Canaletto, after his uncle and teacher Canaletto. His paintings, at first resembling those of his master, are numerous and may be seen in most of the leading European museums. They usually depict scenes in the cities in which Bellotto resided. In 1747 he was appointed court painter at Dresden and in 1770 painter to Stanislaus II at Warsaw.
