Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Havell was the son of a Reading drawing-master, and he participated in several sketching societies in the early 19th century.  In 1805 he contributed to the first exhibition held by the Society of Painters in Water-colours, of which he was a founder-member.

At the same time he began to establish himself as an oil painter, in the manner of Richard Wilson and J. M. W. Turner, exhibiting at the Royal Academy and the British Institution. Initial success was followed by mounting criticis (showing 500 of 2121 characters).
