The oldest known pictures of the Isle of Man are a series of wash drawings in the British Museum. The drawings were executed by Daniel King of Chester - probably between 1643 and 1648 - during his visit to the Island with James 7th Earl of Derby. Watercolour copies of the drawings were produced at the end of the nineteenth century and facsimiles are held in the Manx National Heritage collections.
