The Artistic Patronage of Queen Marie de Brabant (1260-1321)

My project, the final draft of a book examining the commissions of Marie de Brabant (1260-1322), queen of France, analyzes how the dynamics of her patronage played a primary role in transforming conceptions of court, culture, and queenship. Nearly always political in nature, her commissions were nonetheless sumptuous to behold, whether secular or sacred in content. Using an interdisciplinary methodology, contemporary sources, the manuscripts, sculpture, monuments, finery, music, pedagogical treatises, and literature she commissioned, and the ceremonies in which she participated as my evidence, my book will have repercussions for study of the entire late medieval era as well as the broader analysis of women and culture.
