Women as Patrons of Architecture in Renaissance Rome
Dr. Carolyn Valone, Trinity University, is an internationally recognized scholar on the history of patronage in Renaissance Rome. She has published extensively on women as patrons, tracing both the sources of women's wealth and the ways in which they spent their money, particularly as the projects they sponsored benefited other women. The talk promises to be both lively and informative.
