Inspired by our exhibition Canaletto: Painting Venice Professor Dario Camuffo will explore his use of Canaletto’s paintings as a proxy method to study the changes of sea levels in Venice.

What can eighteenth-century paintings tell us about modern-day Venice? What information can be extracted from past depictions of the city in order to understand its present? In this 45 minute fascinating talk Professor Dario Camuffo will explore how Canaletto paintings have contributed to the study of the changes to the average sea level in Venice since the 1700s.
