A view of a dzong (fortress) in Chukha, one of the 20 dzongkhag (districts) comprising Bhutan. It was drawn by Samuel Davis and engraved by William Daniell for their 'Views in Bootan', a rare book containing only six plates, the first views of Bhutan published in England. Davis (1760-1819) was ''Draftsman and Surveyor'' on Samuel Turner's expedition to Tibet on behalf of the East India Company. He was refused entry into Tibet and had to remain in Bhutan as the expedition proceeded. In 1789 he met William Daniell in Bhagalpur, while William was travelling with his uncle Thomas Daniell, and encouraged the two artists to visit the Himalayas. Davis returned to England in 1806 and was made a director of the East India Company the same year. William Daniell (1769-1837) published this work the year he began travelling for his 'Voyage Round Great Britain'.
