Francisco de Herrera the Younger (1622-1685 ) was a Spanish painter and architect. He was the second son of Francisco Herrera the Elder ("el Viejo"), and began his career under his father's instruction; but the father's violent temper at last became so intolerable that the youth fled to Rome. For six years the younger Herrera devoted himself to the study of architecture, perspective, and the antique, his aim being fresco painting.   more from wikipedia »
