Brief Biography-Francisco Henriques was a Netherlandish artist who settled in Portugal c.1500. One of his main works was the high altar of the church of Saint Francisco, Évora, panels can be seen in the National Museum of Ancient Art, Lisbon. Another of his better-known works was a high altarpiece in the Viseu Cathedral which is presently in the Grão Vasco Museum.
