Drawn principally from primary sources, this book presents important new research which examines the contributions of Tudor women in the formation, distribution and popularization of the visual arts within an historical context. Susan James highlights women's contributions to the art world of sixteenth-century England across all social classes, examining not only their role in the creation and commission of art, but also the surprising and unexpected ways in which they exploited it.
