The title refers to Pointe-Lévy [Lévis]. A marine scene depicting a view of the battlements atop Cap Diamant and the buildings of Lower Town from the St. Lawrence River close to the south shore near Pointe-Lévy. At the left of the work are buildings with bell-cast gable roofs along the south shoreline and at the top of a cliff. There is the suggestion of figures near a group of unidentified structures at the left foreground. There are several sailing vessels in the river. At the far right is a three-masted square-rigged vessel with visible gunports. To its left is a schooner with two masts and fore and aft rigged sails. Other single-masted sailing vessels move in the water. Several sailing vessels are moored alongside the north shore at Lower Town.
