‘De Bello Belgico’ was translated into several other European languages in the subsequent decades, with the French ‘Histoire de la guerre des Païs-Bas’ appearing in 1727. The present portrait, made by AE Dischler and published in Vienna during the mid-eighteenth century, was included in later editions of this French translation. It shows the bust of Strada simply dressed in an oval frame set on a plinth, on which his position and date of death are recorded in French.
