Continuing where I left off yesterday, we start with The Piazzetta, Venice, by Bernardo Bellotto, done around 1743.
Another work by Bellotto dating to that time, this is The Arsenal, Venice.
A brief view of things to come. My favourite sculpture in the building is at the far end of this gallery.
But first, I slipped into a side corridor. Here we have Sir Edward Massey, a portrait by Peter Lesy, circa 1647.
Nearby, a 1624 portrait: Charles I When Prince Of Wales, by Daniel Mytens the Elder.
Marie Antoinette As Minerva is the title of this porcelain sculpture, cast in 1780, done by the Sevres Factory under the direction of Louis-Simon Boizot.
American artist Benjamin West, who spent a lot of time in Britain, painted his Self Portrait around 1776. The first version of it, reproduced on the panel below, hangs in a Baltimore gallery.
