The artist known mostly as Canaletto was not the Venetian master, but his nephew who traded under his uncle's name. He was actually Bernardo Bellotto. His paintings of Dresden are most interesting, as are his of Warsaw.

It was beautiful to walk along the river in Dresden in the sunny weather, have a beer in the beer garden and admire the view and buildings across the river.

This is where Bernardo Canaletto stood to paint his famous panoramic view of Dresden, and it still looks much the same today. Impossible to resist taking several photos when standing in this spot.

A very beautiful view of Dresden, had to take my photo of the city as well. It was so interesting to compare the artists view and the view now. You can identify so many places.

A gorgeous view of the glory of dresden very much in the Canelletto style . Representative paintings of this view are shown in the Cosel Pals restaurant also. Do go and take a picture.

An artist view of Dresden. This is a must do for those that appreciate art. Exact spot where Canaletto painted. See Dresden from the artist point of view.
