Both St Petersburg and Amsterdam have often been called the Venice of the North. The expression is a good departure point for presenting the finest works of St Petersburg's collection of eighteenth-century Venetian art in the Hermitage Amsterdam. In the eighteenth century famous painters such as Canaletto, Guardi, Longhi and Tiepolo ensured that Venice's magnificent artistic tradition would have a suitably grand finale. These artists are generously represented in the collections of the Hermitage in St Petersburg and a selection has been made for the Amsterdam exhibition of paintings, drawings and prints by these and other famous artists. The entire display will be supplemented with splendid examples of the celebrated glass of Venice, that has such an enduring tradition in that city.
