Rodrigo de Holanda

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rodrigo de Holanda (Diriksen) was a 16th century Dutch painter who worked in Spain. He was court painter under Philip II and Philip III. of Spain and has emerged as a battle painter, among other things. Rodrigo de Holanda took part in the design of El Escorial . Otherwise little is known about him. In 1591 he received a royal honorary gift of 100 ducats for services rendered and in 1596 another in the same amount because he was in an emergency. His best-known picture (also as a reproduction ) deals with the Battle of Nijmegen (1585).
