Notes

Summary:
The complementary views are taken from each bank of the river Elbe to make the most of the city's superb site and to show its elegant Baroque and Rococo architecture to best advantage. So accurately painted are Bellotto's views of Dresden that they have b een used by German authorities to help reconstruct the city's monuments after their destruction during World War II. Bellotto's work is often confounded with those of his celebrated uncle, Canaletto. He imitated his uncle's style and even signed his paintings with the same nickname.
