The Patron of Art series is the supreme discipline of Montblanc writing instruments. In 1992 the edition started with the first edition honoring „Lorenzo de Medici". Up to and including 1994 there was only the limited edition of 4,810 pieces. In 1995 Montblanc added an additional even more limited edition with only 888 pieces as they launched the Prince Regent edition that year. Thus, since 1995, two editions have been dedicated to each honored person. The patron of art edition is a very coveted edition among collectors all over the world.
