Über diesen Titel


In Britain in the high middle ages women played an active and significant role as artistic patrons. This study considers who these women were, their social status, the sources of their wealth and their motives for acting as they did, in addition to examining the various buildings, tombs and artefacts which they commissioned. Their piety, interests and concerns, and the cultural and social context of their lives are discussed in the context of the evidence offered by surviving buildings, tombs, manuscripts and seal impressions, together with relevant wills, documents and contemporary texts. LOVEDAY LEWES GEE was formerly photograph librarian in the history of art department, University of Warwick.


Much can be inferred from wills, petitions, court decisions, foundation documents, seals and family relationships. The superb kinship tables printed at the end of the book are a source in themselves. Admirably, the book has proper footnotes, as well as an appendix giving details of all the female patrons, genealogical tables and an excellent bibliography. BURLINGTON MAGAZINE Ably surveys a wide range of female artistic patrons and provides detailed evaluations and descriptions of the objects of their patronage, including monuments and tombs, religious and academic foundations, the design of gardens, and the decoration of private chapels and chambers. HISTORY This informative text represents a very useful contribution to a neglected but important field. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW A welcome contribution and resource. SPECULUM There is much sound scholarship here. ALBION
