Canaletto Northumberland House The next two weeks of the Persephone Post will be totally random: pictures chosen a) because we love them b) because they are a 'parallel' to the world of Persephone Books (even if this sometimes seems a little tenuous, there always is one). Northumberland House was at Charing Cross and was painted by Canaletto in 1752; it was demolished in 1873 to make way for Northumberland Avenue. The detail in Canaletto's picture is extraordinary, and it would fit well into this picture-essay about Bricks and Mortar; in any case it's architecture month at Persephone because of the imminent publication of The Sack of Bath.
