Holanda, Francisco de

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary


Francisco de Holanda played a seminal role in the transmission of the humanist discourse on art and architecture to Portugal through both word and image. A key testimony to his entwined artistic practice, literary writing, and intellectual thought is provided by his five extant manuscripts. They underscore how Holanda mastered a range of visual and literary genres of intellectual discourse.
