A Moorland Road by Sir Charles John Holmes

This particular landscape, by a former Director of the National Gallery, has gained a fitting home in the Bowes Museum collection, symbolising as it does the Moorland country to be found at the doors of the Museum, as well as the home of the artist at Appleby, Westmorland.

It's decorative pattern formed by the stone walls and undulating road, together with its sense of solitude, as at the top of the world, must strike a responsive chord in every lover of the Pennine country.
