26 October – 20 January 2020
We’re privileged to be holding the first UK exhibition outside London, dedicated to the Italian Baroque master Guido Reni.
It will showcase his sublime mastery of female beauty and feature works from prestigious public and private collections, including The National Gallery and The Royal Collection, as well as unveil new research into works in the Museum’s own collection.
You can experience the aesthetic quality of Reni’s work up close, as you view his devotional and legendary heroines, from Mary Magdalene to Cleopatra; with the Death of Lucretia, The Bowes Museum’s own painting ‘in conversation’ throughout.
The Museum has collaborated with The Northern School of Art to create garments inspired by the exhibition.
