Canaletto's Venice Revisited

Canaletto Grandcanal

This major new exhibition at the National Maritime Museum brings together the complete set of 24 vedute paintings of Venice that Canaletto produced in the 1730s.

An explosion of colour and detail, this is the first time that Canaletto's Venetian vedute have been displayed together in London. The exhibition encourages audiences to re-examine the paintings, analyse how Canaletto brought each individual to life, and to contextualise and compare the works, which were produced at the very start of Venice's tourist industry, to the modern city and the issues that climate change and over-tourism have caused it.

Canaletto's Venice Revisited opens on 1 April and is on display until 25 September.

Now open: The Nelson Room

Nelsonroom ORNC Copy

The Nelson Room is a relatively small room in Greenwich's Old Royal Naval College that played a significant role in British history. Tens of thousands of people passed through the Nelson Room to pay their respects to Vice-Admiral Lord Nelson whose body lay in state here following his death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. 

The room opened to the public last month following extensive restoration and now hosts an audio-interactive exhibition exploring Nelson’s connection with Greenwich and how the town became the epicentre of a national expression of loss and mourning following the Vide-Admiral's death. Entry to The Nelson Room is included with a ticket to The Old Royal Naval College's Painted Hall.

Raphael at The National Gallery

Raphael 16X9

Delve into the brief but poignant life of Raphael at The National Gallery.

Opening on 9 April, this major exhibition brings together works usually housed in the Louvre, Gallerie Uffizi, Washington National Gallery of Art, the Prado Museum, and the Vatican Museum to create an unprecedented introspective of Raphael's skill, creativity, and ingenuity.

A painter, draughtsman, architect, archaeologist and poet, Raphael captured in his art the human and the divine, love and friendship, learning and power. In his brief career, which spanned just two decades, Raphael shaped the course of Western culture like few artists before or since.
