Renaissance Art Patronage, by Caroline Brooke - SOLD OUT

Study Day | The Carlton Club

Tuesday 23 February 2016 - 11:00 until 16:00

Art historians have become increasingly interested in the role that patrons played in the development of Renaissance art. Issues such as the taste, motivations, political and social ambitions of those who commissioned and paid for paintings, sculpture and architecture are now considered to be crucial factors in any attempt to understand the design and production of art during the 15th and 16th centuries.

This study day, held at the elegant Carlton Club by specialist Caroline Brooke, will explore the topic of patronage through a series of individual case studies in order to highlight the diversity of forms of patronage that prevailed during the period, and to consider the extent to which the innovations and achievements of Renaissance artists might be seen as a consequence of the conditions imposed by the demands of the commission, and the nature of patronage.
