Artist Biography

Brothers Samuel and Nathaniel Buck made their names as leading British topographical draughtsman of the 18th century. Over a period of 34 years, the Bucks produced several hundred drawings and engravings, including 87 engraved prospects of England and Wales. These are now important visual records of the appearance of British urban landscapes prior to the changes that occurred during the Industrial Revolution. In some cases, the places depicted have since disappeared or changed beyond recognition.

Location

Somerset, England, United Kingdom
