The cathedral was built as a minster church in c 924, with the tower added later in 1511-32. The church, the majority of which was rebuilt in 1723 by James Gibbs, became a cathedral in 1927. Joseph Wright was a genre and portrait painter, born in Derby in 1734. He remained in Derby for most of his life, until his death in 1797. He is best known for his industrial scenes such as 'The Air Pump' (1768, Tate, London), and his treatment of artificial light.
