The restoration of monuments, the structure of medieval workshops, and the specific parameters of patronage were often of great importance for the development of art in medieval Rome. This session will examine various issues including the evidence for medieval restorations of earlier (Christian) works of art, the structure of medieval painters’ workshops and how that structure affected the production of imagery, and the influence of patronage both within specific architectural environments as well as the larger context of Rome.
