The magnificent woodland scenery of Gibside sweeps from the heights of the hills to the brink of the Derwent, intersected by deep, irregular ravines. The landscape is sketched in a broad, free style while, across the Derwent, a cultivated country forms a fine, bright contrast to the wooded masses which darken the southern bank.
John Bowes, 10th Earl of Strathmore (1769-1820); by descent to John Bowes, the founder of the Bowes Museum; by descent.
