Overview

This anthology reflects a larger impulse to recover women's involvement in the creation of an aesthetic culture from the late medieval through the early modern periods. By asking how the perspectives and experiences of female patrons contributed to the invention of particular styles or iconographies, or how they shaped taste, or what kind of impact they had on demand, these twelve original essays introduce significant new information about specific women patrons while raising theoretical issues for patronage studies more generally.

Contributors are Carla Lord, Alexandra Carpino, Clifford Brown, Carolyn Smyth, Sheila ffolliott, Alice T. Friedman, Géraldine A. Johnson, Marilyn Dunn, Kathleen Szpila, Cynthia Lawrence, Magdalena Kasman, Elena Ciletti, and Nadia Tscherny.

Editorial Reviews

Sixteenth Century Journal
[P]resents important contributions in two growing areas in art historical scholarship: the history of the involvement of women with the arts, and the history of patronage and collecting....The volume not only underscores the highly respected status of women patrons in the art world, but also provides insight into critical subjects such as new home designs, the collecting of antiquities, the creation of memorial monuments, and the amassing and care of important collections in which women played a recognized, leading, and defining role.
Burlington Review
The essays share an awareness of the acutely privileged but often problematic position from which female patrons operated and the variety of motivations that encouraged their cultural intervention.
