The present article’s main objective is to attract the reader’s attention upon the scarcely known role that women have played in the field of collecting, patronage and artistic maecenatism. Although the existing studies have based, almost exclusively, its attention on the relationship between Art and the most powerful social sectors -mainly men and nobility and high bourgeoisie- nevertheless, recent investigations are tending to carry out more varied studies, where contributions coming from traditionally marginal social figures, such as women and less powerful social classes, occupy an important place. Basing our study on numerous documents proceeding from dowrying letters, wills and certificates of donations placed in the Seville of the last quarter of the eighteenth century, we will rescue from oblivion the name of such women who developed an intense activity as patrons, collectors and donors and whose traces are still present nowadays.
