Bowes Museum

I’ve visited the Bowes Museum to get my six month pass and have an initial sortie through the artifacts – making a shortlist of works (small list of artifacts from 1400 to 1530) for the Independent Essay and to place them physically within a map of the museum.

Will be keeping the Bowes visitor information leaflet in the back of the Moleskine as a reference to where the art is located, notations of location on the map.
