Discuss the role of women as patrons of art and/or architecture during the Renaissance.

General guidance
For each essay, use concrete examples that give scope for a detailed demonstration of your engagement with the question. You should show a thorough grasp of the relevant written sources used for the course (including, where relevant, that in the supplementary reading), and you should give clear evidence that you have carefully looked at, and thought about, the objects you discuss. You should also ensure that what you submit presents a coherent argument and analysis.
