8123 Canaletto           Discovered 1971 Mar. 26 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld on Palomar Schmidt plates taken by T. Gehrels.
Canaletto, whose birth name was Giovanni Antonio Canal (1697-1768), developed the so-called Veduten style of painting, characterized by detailed and precise views of cities. Best known for his paintings of Venice, he also painted London and Dresden.
