    Isabella d'Este Gonzaga (1474-1539), marchioness of Mantua, was a patron of art who was actively engaged in political and cultural developments, and who strove for equality with her male peers. She met Leonardo in late 1499 when he visited Mantua and made a profile portrait drawing of her. This study explores the subsequent relationship of Isabella and da Vinci and what it reveals about art and patronage and women as patrons in the 16th century.
