A previously overlooked painting by Canaletto belonging to the University of Aberdeen has been unveiled. The painting caught the eye of the University's art history professor, John Gash, and he published an article about the work with the Canaletto expert Charles Beddington in The Burlington Magazine.

Incidentally, John Gash runs one of only two art history courses in the UK with a focus on connoisseurship.
