In Nigeria art patronage is still a developing culture. A number of factors of course go to inform the flowering of this culture or the lack of it for that matter. Thus in history of art, art patronage refers to the support and encouragement that was provided to people in the arts such as painters, sculptors, musicians, etc, by kings, popes and wealthy individuals in society. But art appreciation generally is still in its infancy in our clime as it were.
