French Canalettos? -- Cityscapes of the French Enlightenment

Detail from Jean-Baptiste Raguenet (French, 1715-1793) A View of Paris with the ile de la Cité, 1763, The J. Paul Getty Museum, Los Angeles

Unlike Canaletto’s views of Venice or London, paintings by artists such as Jean-Baptiste Raguenet (1715 – 1793) and Alexandre-Jean Noël (1752 – 1834) are not well-known today. Professor Jean Boutier discusses their cityscapes and the works of other artists.
