This selection of the work of the French drawing master, Joseph Bouet shows the Durham of the 1830s in a new light. His previously unpublished drawings are part of Durham University Library's Archives and Special Collections.
The drawings show political reformers and reactionaries, judges and felons and some of the characters from both church and landed society who shaped early Victorian Durham and the development of its University.
Joseph Sebastien Victor Francois (Nicolas) Bouet (1791-1856) spent most of his adult life in Durham City working as a miniature portrait artist, caricaturist and topographical lithographer.
