2019 – Caroline Vrand, Anne de Bretagne et les arts

Caroline Vrand, Anne de Bretagne et les arts. Au rythme de la vie de cour (Anne of Brittany and the Arts. In Step with Life at Court)

The Périer-D’Ieteren Foundation is supporting the publication of the doctoral thesis of Caroline Vrand (Université Paris 1 – Panthéon Sorbonne) on the art collections of Anne of Brittany (1477-1514). The study looks first at written sources – in particular, documents called Anne of Brittany’s “inventories” (BNF, ms fr. 22335) – for a comprehensive approach of the queen’s art collections, their composition and their use at court.
