W. J. Bennett produced this superb aquatint engraving from a painting by George Cooke. The view is from the south bank of the Anacostia River looking northwest to the Navy Yard, the Capitol, and the White House. This early depiction of the capital city is one of the rarest and most beautiful of Washington prints.
The museum quality edition of this view is printed on a heavy, cover stock paper to highlight its delicate coloring.
