The Stuart Court in Rome: A Legacy of Exile - Visual Arts Research Institute Edinburgh (Hardback)Edward Corp (editor)
Hardback Published: 24/09/2003
- Not available
This collection of essays attempts to move beyond the Jacobite debate by furthering our understanding of the Stuart Court in Rome, which is examined as a centre of cultural patronage, particularly of music and painting. The financial vicissitudes of James III and his entourage are uncovered, and the influence of Hanoverian agents such as Baron von Stosch. Careful attention is given to the idealized vision of the court shared by Jacobites in Britain. The book also focuses on the Stuarts themselves: examining links between the Stuarts and Freemasonry; presenting valuable new evidence for the Stuart descent; and discussing the acquisition of Stuart portraits and other relics during the 19th and 20th centuries.
