Greenwich Hospital from the north bank of the Thames
Little is known about this view of Greenwich Hospital from the Isle of Dogs, which may have been commissioned by Consul Joseph Smith for his residence on the Grand Canal. He was British Consul in Venice from 1744 to 1760, where he entertained many English Grand Tourists. Canaletto worked in England from 1746 to late 1755, except for an eight-month return to Venice from late 1750 to August 1751, and this view was probably painted about 1752, perhaps to mark the Hospital's completion in the previous year.
