Lady Anne Clifford: Culture, Patronage and Gender in 17th-century Britain


Lady Anne  Clifford

A collection of papers by leading scholars in the field devoted to the study of Lady Anne Clifford, Countess of Dorset, Pembroke and Montgomery (1590-1676), and one of the great figures of English seventeenth-century history. The volume’s origins lie in a symposium held in March 2004 at Tate Britain, to coincide with the display there of Lady Anne’s Great Triptych on loan from the Abbot Hall Art Gallery, Kendal.
