Image of View from the Artist - no. 16


A loyal reader reminds me we haven't had one of these for a while. Can you guess the location and the artist? No prizes, just for fun...

Update - well done to those of you who got it right: Canaletto's view of Walton Bridge in the Dulwich Art Gallery. 

And thanks to the reader who sent in this:

I reckon that today's "View from the Artist" is a detail from  Old Walton Bridge by Canaletto.   A feature familar to me as I drive across the current incarnation of it a least twice a day.  Sadly the latest bridge is not nearly as quaint (see attached illustration)  and the traffic is considerably more congested.  Fishermen still a frequent sight but the washerwomen have been supplanted by flocks of Canada geese.
