Katherine is our guide through the regency of Catherine de’ Medici and her artistic campaign to cast Diane de Poitiers in the shade. Just some things to think about as you read this article: Waging a campaign with art is a particularly sophisticated type of warfare! How does Caron’s imagery reinforce Catherine’s role as regent? How strong is ffolliott’s argument about women in power having to have distinct imagery from that of men in power? How does Caron subvert Diane’s former position of power? What is the significance of Cellini’s relief of the Nymph of Fontainebleau? How does the gender of the architectural orders come into play in this article? Are your convinced by the author’s interpretation of “The Petitions?” Does ffolliott take the “eclipse” of Diane too far into the realm of interpretation?
