After a varied past featuring Mick Jagger and Capability Brown, Canaletto has come home to the castle, for a month anyway.
At an atmospherically-lit opening night with prosecco, canap├ęs and the great and good of Warwickshire for company it was a charming welcome back for the works.
Two paintings of Warwick Castle by Canaletto from 1752, owned by Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery, have been loaned to go on show in the room they used to hang in until November 29, and can be seen by all paying visitors.
