Anna of Denmark

Jemma Field

Manchester University Press

Nuances the male-dominated history of collecting and display at the Stuart court, and the use of the “Italianate” as the benchmark of cultural erudition. Confirms that Anna’s palaces were largely filled with Flemish and Dutch artworks and argues that, far from being a sign of her disinterest or naïveté, these goods were a tool for building affinity with her Danish ancestors and siblings while highlighting the continued currency of artistic centres outside of Italy. It further shows the queen facilitating cultural transfer between the Stuart and Oldenburg courts as numerous parallels link Anna’ tastes, interests, and patronage, with those of her brother, King Christian IV of Denmark (1577-1648), which are particularly noticeable in the realms of painting and music.
