Abstract

Commissioning and donating objects were crucial aspects in the representation of rulers, whether secular or religious, high or lower nobility, male or female. However, the object as part of the issue as representation is merely part of its story. By analysing more carefully colour and material the message of art-works – varying from power to commemoration – can be dechipered more completely.
