The Bowes Museum has a nationally renowned art collection containing paintings by El Greco, Francisco Goya, Canaletto, Jean-Honoré Fragonard and François Boucher.
The museum also has a collection of decorative art, ceramics, textiles, tapestries, clocks and costumes, as well as older items from local history.
The Bowes Museum was purpose-built as a public art gallery for John Bowes and his wife Joséphine Chevalier, Countess of Montalbo, who both died before it opened in 1892. Bowes was the illegitimate son of John Bowes, the 10th Earl of Strathmore and Kinghorne.
