  The motivations for acquiring paintings that would add to the culture of her place could have been rooted very early in the Queen. Queen Christina would have been motivated to do that for her society that her father did for her. She was one of the young ascendants of the throne and her succession was questioned by many from even her birth. The royal family expected a boy when Christina was born and her father, the monarch ensured that the young Christina was in no way deficient when it came to her education or her other activities. The monarch Gustavus Adolphus of Sweden did this to ensure that nobody questioned the rights of succession of Christina when she was ready for it. Because of this early inculcation in fine education and culture, Queen Christina would have been motivated to pass on such an education to her subjects too. She was called the “the Minerva of the North” on account of her inviting artists to her place and similarly her acquisition of paintings was also seen to be part of her attempt to foster culture in her lands. Paradoxically her own motivation towards culture and the kind of person she represented herself to be clashed at some levels. Queen Christina of Sweden has been called mannish because of her focus on the intellect and elements of culture rather than representing herself as a woman. Compared to the woman of her times, she was not interested in fashionable clothing or hairstyles. She dressed in garments and shoes that were more innately masculine. For a Queen who fostered culture by bringing in historical paintings and other elements, Queen Christina was seen to be opposed to expectations that were laid on her as per social conformance elements, yet in the acquisition of cultural products such as the paintings she was seen to be following a trend that was set by her father Adolphus.

  While possessing cultural acquisitions was seen to be one of the main reasons for Queen Christina’s attempt to widen her collections, another powerful motivation is also argued for by researchers. Queen Christina was a woman in a man’s world. When she was born the Queen mother was disappointed that she had a girl and not a boy. Christina in her young age was considered as a very ugly little girl. With the death of Gustavus Adolphus the Queen was seen to become much more erratic and withdrawn and it was during this time that the Queen started to have a linking for Christina. Christina resembled the late King and there is a research argument made based on psychology that Christina disliked anything feminine mainly because of her mother’s emotional state. This attitude of Christina can also be seen in her painting collections (which will be discussed in the third part of this review). Christina’s painting collections in the palace were taken inventory of by Trichet and Granberg. In the three story palace, while the ground floor held the antique sculpture collection of the Queen, the second floor was being the paintings were hung. There were as many as fifty-seven paintings in the main galleria. Most of the paintings were done by Italian artists such as that of TizianoVecelli, Bellini and Sarto. There were more paintings in the stanza deiquadri which will form the main subject of discussion with respect to the galleries. The Queen’s collections were from different royal houses and this showed her need to reinstate her power in a man’s world. Holding those paintings was a sign of power. Yet the very paintings and the way they were represented seems to indicate the struggle of a confident woman in a male dominant world.
