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.
