The Female Patron

Tuesday 3rd October at 18:00


When writing about women’s contributions to art patronage, scholar Carolyn Valone posits ‘We need to discover what women did, not what men said.’  This session does just that by looking at a variety of works of art and architecture commissioned by women including Isabella d’Este, Alfonsina Orsisini de’ Medici, and Vittoria Colonna.
