Summary/Abstract: Imrich Esterházy is one of the most important 18th-century patrons, yet his patronage in present-day Slovakia, Hungary, and Croatia have not been analyzed. Detailed iconological research on his commissions is lacking as well. The aim of this study is to summarize and briefly analyze his extensive, but still not comprehensively processed, historiography. The latter constitutes the basis for further research, especially in the field of iconology and patronage, and thus will be able to make future research faster and easier. I will focus on literary and archival sources related to the person of the Primate, most of which are still unknown in our region.
