Havell was the English engraver of John James Audubon's The Birds of America. He came to the United States in 1839, settling about 1841 at Sing Sing, Westchester County and turning to landscape subjects. Havell's vision celebrates the riverside village, now called Ossining, as a bucolic haven. His painting is an elaborately detailed panoramic vista from his own hilltop house, called Rocky Mount, charting both sides of the river almost in the manner of a mapmaker. A bright sky presides over the eastern bank while dark clouds rise above the distant heights to the west. Vessels of all kinds ply the broad waters of the Tappan Zee.
