Me Fieri Fecit: the role and representation of owners, donors and patrons in medieval art
A one day symposium on the multi-faceted roles and representations of owners, donors and patrons in medieval art
University of Kent, Canterbury, Friday 11 May 2012
Medieval art teems with examples of owners, donors & patrons whose presence is expressed in a variety of ways. Representation differs in form, frequency and level from explicit portrayal to implicit inclusion. The ‘Me Fieri Fecit’ symposium seeks to generate discussion on the how, who and why of ownership, donation and patronage of medieval art.
Dr Julian Luxford, author of The Art and Architecture of English Benedictine Monasteries1300-1540: A patronage history (Suffolk: Boydell Press, 2005) will give the keynote address and head the plenary session.
