This year, Montblanc’s Patron of Art Pen is dedicated to Gaius Cilnius Maecenas. An advisor to the first emperor of Rome, Caesar Augustus, Maecenas was renowned for his support of young poets. Inspired by Roman architecture, the pen has a column-style barrel in marbled lacquer. The sterling silver cap is inscribed with Horace’s ode to Maecenas and the 18k gold nib is engraved with a laurel wreath in tribute to the esteemed patron. The pen marks the 20th anniversary of Montblanc’s series of pens which commemorate benefactors of the arts.
