Artist unknown :[The Southern Alps from the mouth of the Taramakau River, after Charles Heaphy. ca 1867.]
Looking south along the coastline of the West Coast, showing travellers fording the mouth of the Taramakau River, and Mount Cook, its height exaggerated, amongst the Southern Alps
By the same hand as A-048-026: [Taupo Lake].
Corresponds closely to the chromolithograph in: Hochstetter, F. von. New Zealand, its physical geography. Stuttgart, 1867, p. 38, entitled: The Southern Alps ... Ch. Heaphy del. A. Meerman sc. The chromolithograph has slightly more details, suggesting that this is a comtemporary careful copy. The Heaphy drawing on which it is based was done in 1846.
