Course Description

A taste for elegance and luxurious refinement created a world in which royal mistresses had at their disposal the best of their country’s painters and decorative artists to embellish their kings’ palaces and various residences. The collections amassed by the royal mistresses were made possible by their acknowledged position, which conferred almost unlimited spending power.  The lives and political influence of mistresses such as Diane de Poitiers and Madame du Pompadour will be discussed within the social and political surroundings of court life.
