What is patronage?

Patronage is the support, encouragement, privilege, or financial aid that an organization or individual bestows to another. In the history of art, arts patronage refers to the support that kings, popes, and the wealthy have provided to artists such as musicians, painters, and sculptors.

The word “patron” derives from the Latin: patronus (“patron”), one who gives benefits to his clients.
