--I'd say to start with the Medicis for commissioned work. Most of
Michaelangelos stuff was commissioned as was DaVinci. But the big tamale for
generating art would be the catholic church of the Renaissance. In more
recent times check into the families of Newport R.I. (Astors, Vanderbilts,
etc.) as they commisioned for their many homes. Lots of portraits.
