Giovanni Antonio Canale, called Canaletto Biography

Giovanni Antonio Canale was born in October 1697 and baptized in the church of San Lio. He later became known as Canaletto, probably to distinguish him from his father Bernardo Canale, who was also an artist. The professional training Canaletto received from his father, who worked as a designer and scene painter for the theater, and had some success. Canaletto, together with his brother Christoforo, initially followed Bernardo, and was himself employed as a theatrical painter.
