Agnes
Flourished circa 1200, Quedlinburg, Germany

Agnes was the abbess of a convent in Quedlinburg, Germany, from 1184 to 1203. During that time, she was known as a great patron of paintings, reliquaries, and reliefs and was by some accounts an artist herself. Under her direction, the nuns at Quedlinburg took on many artistic enterprises, particularly the manufacture of wall tapestries.
