This publication accompanied an exhibition held at the Bowes Museum...it weaves into a general narrative of the development of nineteenth century French landscape painting an account of the Parisian art market during the Second Empire and of the collecting activities of Joséphine Bowes, comedy actress, amateur artist and , with her husband John, joint benefactor of the Bowes Museum....with the loan of works by Sisley, Pissarro et al, from British collections, the exhibition speculated on how the Bowes’ collection might have evolved over the last quarter of a century. The appendixes contain transcriptions of lists of artists’ materials supplied to Joséphine Bowes for a painting expedition in 1866, her catalogue of works by living artists begun the same year, details of suppliers’ stamps on canvases in the collection and, most usefully, an annotated list of contemporary French sales catalogues in the Museum’s archives (James Beechey, The Burlington Magazine, January 2004)
