`William Daniell's greatest triumph as an artist and engraver came in his views of Windsor and Eton, a series of coloured aquatints, which surpasses even the London views of 1804-5' (M. Hardie and M. Clayton, Thomas & William Daniell, `Walker's Quarterly', 1932, p.31).

Four of his engraved watercolours of Windsor were sold at Christie's on 5th July 2011, lots 143-6 for between £9,000 and £60,000 each. The present watercolour is stylistically later and is likely to date from the 1830s.
