Women and Architectural Patronage in Georgian Britain

23rd Apr, 2024
Online event

An enduring myth of Georgian architecture is that it was purely the pursuit of male architects and their wealthy male patrons. Amy Boyington dismantles this myth, revealing instead that women were at the heart of the architectural patronage of the day, exerting far more influence and agency than has previously been recognised. Architectural drawing and design, discourse, and patronage were interests shared by many women in the eighteenth century. Far from being the preserve of elite men, architecture was a passion shared by both sexes, intellectually and practically, as long as they possessed sufficient wealth and autonomy.
