Canaletto's business was badly hit by the War of the Austrian Succession (–8), which severely curtailed Continental travel and therefore cut him off from his main patrons.

Giovanni Antonio Canal () was better known as Canaletto meaning ‘Little Canal’ to distinguish him from his father, a painter. Giovanni Antonio Canal, known as Canaletto, was born in Venice, the son of a theatrical scene painter. He was very influential, famed for his precisely depicted and evocative views of the city (vedute).

Canaletto's early pictures for local patrons are his most accomplished: these carefully designed, individual, and atmospheric studies include 'The Stonemason's Yard'. His most important patron was the English consul, Joseph Smith, who bought large numbers of Canalettos for resale to his countrymen.

Canaletto constructed his views of Venice with painstaking care. Usually he drew the scene on the spot and then made more detailed studies in his. Gaining interest from English patrons, Canaletto relocated to England instaying until about His works created while there attempted the same sweeping scenes of Venice, including Westminster Bridge, from and a painting of Northumberland House from Born: Through acting as the agent for Canaletto, Smith also exploited the links and contacts between Venetian artists and British patrons which had been established at the beginning of the 18 th century, including Gianantonio Pellegrini, Marco Ricci and his uncle Sebastiano Ricci who had all worked in Britain.

Smith bought contemporary Venetian art. InCanaletto went to England as commissions dried up. At the time, he had a great reputation with many patrons, in London. Altogether he spent nine years in London. However, his stay was not an unmitigated success. As time went on, his patrons began to find the his English works disappointing and lacked the sparkles of his earlier.

Charles Beddington supports the suggestion that there was a single assistant in London who helped Canaletto complete his considerable workload. Beddington, ed., Canaletto in England, J. G Links, however, expresses doubt that Canaletto employed assistants in Venice.

He was Canaletto’s most important patron, commissioning series of views from the artist which he then displayed in his Venetian residence at Palazzo Balbi on the Grand Canal. Smith’s home was a popular meeting place for Venetian and expat society, as well as a resort for men of letters who came to consult his admirable library.
