Jean Eleanor Bowman was an American sporting artist and equine portraitist.

Her career was launched in 1940 when she held her first solo show at Vose Gallery in Boston. In 1980, she helped to establish the American Academy of Equine Art, which is now located in Georgetown, Kentucky. Bowman’s artwork was featured on over 60 front covers of The Chronicle of the Horse, an American equestrian magazine founded in 1937. Her patrons included prominent horse enthusiasts and equestrians such as Queen Elizabeth II, Paul Mellon, and John Hay Whitney and her work is displayed in the National Sporting Library and Museum in Middleburg, Virginia. Tragically, Bowman died in an plane crash in 1994.
