Venice: The Grand Canal with S. Simeone Piccolo, about 1740
© The National Gallery, London
The Canaletto masterpiece, The Grand Canal with S. Simeone Piccolo has been represented in this elegant and bold hatbox arrangement. Canaletto’s sweeping view takes on everyday life of the Grand Canal, Venice. This painting is incredibly intricate showing a boat with two women who seem to be colliding with one of the fishing vessels, while fishermen draw their nets in the centre. Across the canal to the left is the imposing church of San Simeone Piccolo, with its green copper dome. The painting’s grand scale – over two metres wide – is matched by the careful observation of crisp details, light effects and varied textures: shimmering roof tiles, crumbling facades and delicate ripples and reflections on the water.
Our florists have included Memory Lane Roses, Sweet Avalanche Roses, Black Calla Lilies, Vanda Black Orchids, Blue Veronice, Orion Blue Eryngium, Cinerea Eycalyptus and Pistache to showcase this intricate painting into a beautiful hatbox bouquet.
These luxury flowers are inspired by the masterpieces housed at the National Gallery. Each bouquet is beautifully arranged by our floral designers exclusively for the National Gallery. Included you will receive a gift card print of the artwork and a National Gallery care guide.
