NOTES: Formerly an Augustinian priory founded in around 1170, Newstead Abbey is perhaps best known as the former home of Lord Byron. Its late 13th century west church front can be seen on the upper left of Shaw's design. Thomas Wildman bought Newstead from Byron in 1818, employing Shaw to carry out alterations.
NOTES: In addition to being a landscape and architectural painter, lithographer and archaeologist, Bouet was also appointed Inspecteur de la Societe Francaise d'Archeologie. This drawing is one of a number of topographical studies and details of French, German, Italian and Swiss medieval architecture executed by him between around 1850 and 1865.
