  Consumption in current culture is more focused on acquisition. However, Queen Christina’s painting collection is seen to be focused on informing her society and surrounding her society with cultural artefacts. Magnificence refinement and comfort were important in the seventeenth century. It was shaped by political power, changing social relationships, economic development, and new mentalities. Court architects and builders influenced both cityscape and country architecture. Change was the order of the day in Europe but the historical artefacts of the times were also preserved. Art was flourishing as ever. Magnificence, refinement and comfort were the most important aspirations. Living in the 17th century, Queen Christina was an active patron of the arts. Her extensive collection of paintings was noteworthy for its numerous depictions of women in erotic poses. It was not just in the case of paintings that Christina had a vast variety of tastes; it also extended to her other collections. For instance, in the case of a former convent called the Tor Di Nona, Christina changed the theatre into a place where plays and operas could be produced. Female role was played by young women instead of the castrati as was the norm. This was quite different from the contemporary ways of her time. In many ways it could be said that the Queen’s collections hence challenged the norms of consumption and luxury in the case of Europe.

  Luxury consumption was high in Sweden and this is reflected in Queen Christina’s ways. In the seventeenth century Swedish Aristocracy was on the transformation into a luxurious society from being a backward agrarian society. Where Europe was much forward in terms of culture, Sweden in terms of both luxury styles of living and culture was still catching up. The aristocratic lifestyle that was adopted by the monarch of Sweden (Queen Christina’s father) can almost be called as an import or an acquisition, not much different from the acquisitions that Queen Christina was set out to collect later. The courtly culture of the European Renaissance period took roots in Sweden only later. The leadership of Gustavus Adolphus and Axel Oxenstierna was seen to be the reason behind this. The monarch Adolphus attempted to bring up Sweden from its backward state. To this extent the luxury consumptions in the time were in the form of architecture, art and more. The Stockholm palace was built and Adolphus was interested in his country shifting to houses of stone instead of the cabins that they were used to living in. Power status came to be associated with luxury consumption and aristocracy and it was more than a necessity for the country to adopt practices that reflected a much more improved and reformed culture. Sweden by this time had started importing scholars, works of scholars, arts and artists in order to improve its culture. It was importing to such a level that it was also creating artists. The seventeenth century is in fact called the epoch of greatness. In Queen Christina’s time the collection of paintings hence represented her following a trend that was set by her father Adolphus. Whether Adolphus also was focused on collecting much paintings and art work is not specifically investigated for, but research shows that the trend of collections was in place even before Queen Christina was crowned. However, during Queen Christina’s time her collections and her lifestyle grew more extravagantly than her predecessor. In Queen Christina’s rule there was more unbounded wealth available in the form of donations that were made by the landed estates to aristocracy. So although the Queen’s painting collection was seen to be an expensive amusement it was not exactly unaffordable. The money that was being bought into the aristocracy through merchants and landowners was well enough to support Queen Christina in bringing the cultural artefacts into the country. Following in the trend of King Adolphus the paintings collection was a representation of Sweden moving from its uncouth habits to elegance. The collections represented a form of forward movement for Sweden.
