The Pope and patronage in Baroque Rome

The election of Pope Innocent X Pamphilj in 1644 catapulted his family to the height of Roman society; their arts patronage became the visual expression of the family’s new identity. A volume edited by Boston College Associate Professor of Fine Arts Stephanie LeoneThe Pamphilj and the Arts: Patronage and Consumption in Baroque Rome–examines the patronage of three generations of the Pamphilj family from the perspectives of art history, history, theology, musicology and literary studies. The book, which represents the proceedings of a 2010 BC conference, will be presented to the Doria Pamphilj family on Nov. 24 in Rome, Italy in the Galleria Doria Pamphilj Throne Room. Leone and BC McMullen Museum of Art Director and Professor Nancy Netzer will speak at the event.
