Willem Danielsz. van Tertrode

ca. 1525 - 1580

In about 1545 Tetrode travelled to Italy, where he became known as “Guglielmo Fiammingo”. He worked initially for Benvenuto Cellini, and then during the 1550s in the workshop of Guglielmo della Porta in Rome. It is possible that he was in the service of Cosimo I de’ Medici from the early 1560s onward. In 1564/65 he collaborated with Bartolomeo Ammanati on the Neptune Fountain on the Piazza della Signoria in Florence. After more than twenty years Tetrode returned, via Munich, to Delft, where he executed the high altar for the Oude Kerk; soon after its erection, however, the altar was demolished during the outbreak of iconoclasm in 1573/74. Tetrode then emigrated to Cologne, where he worked for Archbishop Salentin von Isenburg and for the city councillor Peter Terlan von Lennep. He died in Arnsberg in 1580 while in the service of the Prince of Isenburg, the former archbishop.
