Artist Patrick Hughes, creator of 'Reverspective', has always been inspired by Venice and Canaletto’s use of perspective in his work. Hear more about this directly from the artist in conversation with Katherine Gazzard, curator of our current exhibition Canaletto’s Venice Revisited. This is also your opportunity to see Hughes’ original painting, Queen of the Adriatic (2020), alongside the exhibition in its final weeks of opening.
