1615 ca1686
a widely travelled painter of the Dutch Golden Age. In 1638 Stoop was a pupil in the Utrecht guild. He then went to live in Italy, probably between 1639 and 1645. During a subsequent visit to England he painted the panoramic Restoration procession of King Charles II (1660). Dirk then went on to Lisbon and became Court painter to the Princess Catherine of Braganza. Rodrigo, as he was known locally, did many works for the Portuguese court in its entirety, from various portraits to the famed depiction of Ribeira Palace. When Cathrine was betrothed to Charles II, he joined her entourage when she came to England in 1662.
