The Bowes Museum in North East England is an art museum that features decorative art (including pottery, textiles, stained glass, and furniture) as well as a number of paintings. Established as a public art gallery in the late nineteenth century, the museum features works that span across several centuries. For those who can't visit the museum in person (or who want to be extra prepared for their next trip), the Bowes Museum also hosts this engaging blog about the museum's permanent collections and special exhibitions. For example, one recent post explores the furniture and architecture that appear in Dieric Bouts's St. Luke Drawing the Virgin and Child, a fifteenth century Flemish painting that the museum acquired last year. Another recent post highlights the museum's Shelf Life exhibition in which contemporary artist Mark Clarke assembled sculptures from a variety of familiar found objects.
