His works, often characterized by linear perspectives and minute architectural details, feature scenes from Venice and other European cities. Canaletto was also recognized for his technical skills in depicting reflections on water. His paintings influenced artistic perception of architecture and perspective, leaving a lasting legacy in art history.
