The material and visual culture of the Stuart Courts, 1589–1619

This book analyses Anna of Denmark’s material and visual patronage at the Stuart courts, examining her engagement with a wide array of expressive media including architecture, garden design, painting, music, dress, and jewellery. Encompassing Anna’s time in Denmark, England, and Scotland, it establishes patterns of interest and influence in her agency, while furthering our knowledge of Baltic-British transfer in the early modern period. Substantial archival work has facilitated a formative re-conceptualisation of James and Anna’s relationship, extended our knowledge of the constituents of consortship in the period, and has uncovered evidence to challenge the view that Anna followed the cultural accomplishments of her son, Prince Henry. This book reclaims Anna of Denmark as the influential and culturally active royal woman that her contemporaries knew. Combining politics, culture, and religion across the courts of Denmark, Scotland, and England, it enriches our understanding of royal women’s roles in early modern patriarchal societies and their impact on the development of cultural modes and fashions. This book will be of interest to upper level undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses on early modern Europe in the disciplines of Art and Architectural History, English Literature, Theatre Studies, History, and Gender Studies. It will also attract a wide range of academics working on early modern material and visual culture, and female patronage, while members of the public who enjoy the history of courts and the British royals will also find it distinctively appealing.

expressive media that often ran counter to the interests of King James. First articulated by Leeds Barroll and continued in the work of James Knowles, Clare McManus, and Sophie Tomlinson, among others, Anna’s masquing activities have been recognised as a central component of early Stuart court culture, and have provided a fertile platform for a reconsideration of her wider political import.17 As is now well known, the masque was an important occasion in the court calendar, and beyond its cultural significance, it had far-reaching political, diplomatic, and social

highly invested in matters of law, politics, and diplomacy. They were largely cosmopolitan in their outlook, interested in travel and nascent forms of travel writing, and often turned to continental writers for inspiration. They valued parody, satire, and sophisticated literary jokes and preferred a plainer way of speaking to the more elaborate speech of the late Elizabethan and early Stuart courts. Herbert is not often considered an active member of this fellowship, apart from his friendship with John Donne. Yet the

, the performance of playtexts in the playhouse was very different from how drama was staged in the Elizabethan and early Stuart playhouse. Perhaps Davenant’s protectorate masques had a greater aesthetic legacy than their political context would suggest. In transferring the court masque to the public stage, Davenant introduced novelties such as the proscenium arch, scenery and women actors. These innovations were retained and built upon as exiled royalists (who were accustomed to these staging conventions in continental theatre houses and at the early Stuart court
