Biography

Francisco Henriques († 1518 in Lisbon) was a Renaissance painter with presumed Flemish roots.

Henriques probably came from the south of the Netherlands, but in his works one can find influences from both the north and the south of the Netherlands. Henriques was mainly active as a painter in Portugal. He collaborated with clergy, for example when he drew up the life of the virgins at the beginning of the 16th century. This painting was to decorate the altar of a cathedral. Between 1502 and 1508 he worked in the church of São Francisco in Évora, where he created 16 panels of paintings, which were thematically rather loosely connected. In these paintings one can find, among others, monks of the Franciscan Order, the Passion of Christ and the life of holy virgins.
