Published under the auspices of the Commissariat for the Seventeenth European Exposition of Art Science and Culture Council of Europe (Lisvon 1983) and came to fruition with generous sponsorship of the Totta Bank in commemoration of the 140th anniversary of the 1843-1838 Portuguese Banking Institution. Francisco de Holanda (originally Francisco d'Olanda; 6 September 1517 – 19 June 1585) was a court painter, architect, and sculptor for the Portuguese King Joćo III, and later for Sebastian of Portugal. He is considered to be one of the most important figures of the Portuguese Renaissance. Francisco was also an essayist, architect and historian. Colonna provided him with access to some of the greatest artists of the period such as Parmigianino, Giambologna, and most importantly, Michelangelo, who introduced him to Classicism.
