SARABIA, Francisco Antolines, nephew of
Josef de Sarabia, born at Seville in 1644, studied
for the law, but afterwards took to art, and went
to Madrid to study in the school of Murillo. He
received a judgeship at Seville, but eventually re-
turned to Madrid, where he took orders, and died
in 1700.

SARABIA, Josef de, a Spanish painter, horn at
Seville in 1608, was iirst placed with Agustin del
Castillo, and after that master's death in 1626, with
Francisco Zurbaran. He chiefly resided at Cordova,
where he painted' many pictures and altar-pieces
for the churches. He was not defioient in merit, but
he took his subjects from prints by Sadeler, some
of which were after Rubens, and imposed them on
the ignorant as his own inventions. The best
original work of Sarabia is the ' Flight into Egypt,'
which is entirely his own composition. He died at
Cordova in 1669.

SARACENI, (or Saraoino, Saracini,) Carlo,
called Veneziano, a painter, born in Venice in
1585. According to Baglione, he visited Rome
during the pontificate of Clement VIII., and
was for some time under the tuition of Camillo
Mariani, but afterwards studied and imitated the
manner of Caravaggio. He returned to Venice,
whither he had been invited to paint a picture for
the council-chamber, but did not live to finish it.
He died in 1625. Saraceni engraved a few plates
from his own designs, which he signed usually
Garolus Saracenus invent. Pictures:

Sarazin de Belmont



SARAZIN DB BELMONT Louise Josephine,
painter and lithographer, was born at Versailles in
1790. She was a pupil of Valenciennes, and was
several times premiated. From 1812 till 1868 she ex-
hibited a very large number of works at the Salon,
her subjects being principally landscape views, with
vaiious effects of light. Of her essays in another
manner we may mention ' Gil Bias ' and ' Don
Alphonso' (1822) ; ' Herminia and Tancred' (1824).
Examples of her work are to be seen in the galleries
of Angers, Nantes, and Toulouse. She died in 1871.

SARBOT. By an artist of this name, who flour-
ished about 1675, we have a print of ' Christ pray-
ing in the Garden,' supported by an angel. It is
probably from his own design, as he adds the word
fecit to hia name.

SARBRUCK, Babtholome von, painter, born at
Treves about 1590, and called Tbevirensis, worked
in Basle and in Bern, and painted several portraits
in the style of Vandyck.

SARMIENTO, Teresa, Duchess of Bejar, an
amateur historical painter of much talent, who
painted pictures for various churches in Madrid,
where she was living towards the middle of the
17th century.

SARRABAT, Daniel, painter, born at Paris in
1666. Three prize pictures by him are recorded :
.'Noah entering the Ark' (1686), 'The Deluge'
(1687), 'Noah leaving the Ark' (1688); but he
never took part in any public exhibitions, and
though received by the Academy in 1702, did not
become a full member. Ho died at Lyons, June
22nd, 1748.

SARRABAT, Isaac, a French mezzotint en-
graver, born at Les Andelys about 1660. He was
one of the earliest artists of his country who prac-
tised that mode of engraving, and his plates are
very indifferently executed. Among others, we
have the following prints by him :

J. B. Bossuet, Bishop of Meaux ; after Uigaud,
Antoine Coypel, Painter to the King; after JVetscher.
Etienne Gantrel, Engraver to the King ; after Largil-

The Confessor ; in two plates ; after N. van Haeften.
Heraclitus, half-length ; after M. Corneille.

SARRAGON, John, an engraver and publisher,
■who flourished about the year 1645. His plates
were mostly portraits.

SARRAZIN, BiNiGNB, painter, the son and pupil
of Jacques Sarrazin, was granted a pension by
Louis XIV. to enable him to complete his studies
at Rome, and after his father's death was allowed to
retain the latter's lodging in the Louvre. His only
recorded work was a series of paintings, which he
executed in 1674, in the chapel of the H6tel de
Ville at Marseilles, but these were some years ago
destroyed during an alteration of the building. He
died in Paris in 1692.

SARRAZIN, Jacques, the elder, the famous
French sculptor, born at Noyon in 1588, painted a
few pictures. D'Argenville speaks of a 'Holy
Family ' and four medallions at the ' Minimes ' in
Paris, so beautiful that they might be taken for the
work of Lesueur. In the Rennes Museum there is
a pencil drawing by him, and Duret engraved
some of his Madonnas. He died in Paris in 1660.

SARRAZIN, Jean Baptiste, professor at the
Academy of St. Ltike at Paris, held an appoint-
ment as decorative painter at the court of Louis
XVI. He exhibited a few landscape and marine
views between 1762 and 1793.

SARTABELLI. See Saltakello.

SARTI, Antonio, an Italian painter, practising
about 1600, mentioned by Baldassini in his ' Storia

in the collegiate church of Massaccio.

SARTI, Ercolb, called II Muto di Ficarolo,
was born at Ficarolo, a town in the duchy of Fer-
rara, in 1593, of a respectable family, and was deaf
and dumb from his birth. Before he was sixteen
years of age, on the occasion of a solemn proces-
sion, he placed on the front of his father's house
a picture he had painted in secret, representing
the 'Adoration of the Magi.' This unexpected
production was the object of general astonishment,
and its author was placed under Carlo Bononi, at
Ferrara. He afterwards imitated the style of Ippolito
Scarsellino, his contemporary. The principal pic-
tures of Sarti are in the church of the Benedictines,
in his native town. He also painted a portrait of
Pope Sylvester, now in the Oostabili Gallery. He
died about 1637.

SARTO, Andrea del. See Andrea d'Agnolo.

SARTORIUS, Francis, an animal painter, who
lived and practised in England during the latter
part of the 18th century. He painted portraits of
horses and dogs, and also hunting-pieces. Many
of his productions were engraved in mezzotint and
aquatint. He died about 1806.

SARTORIUS, Jakob Christopher, an engraver
of Nuremberg, whose portraits and book-illus-
trations bear dates from 1694 to 1737.

SARTORIUS, John N., son of Francis Sartorius,
was, like him, an animal painter. He exhibited at
the Academy from 1778 to 1824. His subjects
were connected with the turf. A few game pieces
are extant with the name of Sartorius, but whether
by John N. or Francis is uncertain.

SARZETTI, Angiolo, an artist of the Bolognese
school, born at Rimini. For the church of the
Angioli, in his native town, he executed some
paintings in oil and in fresco. He was a pupil of

SAS, Christian, a German engraver, who flour-
ished from about 1630 to 1660. He engraved

from the life of St. Philip Neri, after Stella. There
are some other plates by him, after II Pomerancio,
and other masters.

SASC, Julie de, {nee Lisiewska,) painter, born
in Saxony, 1724. She was the pupil of her father,
Georg Lisiewski, and lived for some time at the
Hague, where she became a member of the Pictura
Society in 1767. She died at Berlin in 1794.

SASONOFF, Wassily Kondeatiewitch, a Russian
painter, born at Gomel, Mohyleff, about 1789. He
studied in the Academies of Petersburg and Ongru-
moff, and devoted himself chiefly to biblical and
historical subjects. An example of the latter is
in the Hermitage at Petersburg: ' The Grand Duke
Dmitry Donskoy after the Victory of Koulikovo,
1380.' ■ He died at Petersburg in 1870.

SASS, Henry, portrait painter, son of an artist,
was born in London in 1788. His first work was
the ' Descent of Ulysses into Hell,' and in 1816 he
went to Rome. He never, however, obtained much
reputation as an artist, though he was very success-
ful as an elementary teacher. Many of the chief
English painters of the 19th century passed through
his school. He died in 1844. (See ' Reminiscences,'
by W. P. Frith ; London, 1887.)

SASSE, Richard, a water-colour painter, born
in 1774, exhibited landscapes at the Academy from




1791 to 1813. In 1811 He was appointed teacher

the Prince Regent. In 1815 he travelled on the
continent, and eventually settled in Paris, -where

SAVERY, Jakob, the elder, born at Courtrai,
practised at Amsterdam about 1560. He was the
father of Jakob Savery the younger, and the
master of Willem van Niculant. He excelled in
paintinu; animals, birds, and fishes.

SAVERY, Jakob, the younger, painter, was
born at Com trai about the year 1645, and was a
disciple of Hans Bol. He painted landscapes and
animals, which he finished with great labour and
patience, though in a hard, dry style. He died of
the plague at Amsterdam in 1602. At the Hague
there is a ' Kermesse of St. Sebastian ' by him.

SAVERY, Jan, a Flemish painter and engraver,
born at Courtrai in 1697. According to Huber,
he was the nephew of Roelandt Savery, and was
probably his scholar, as he painted landscapes in
a similar style. He died in 1665. We have several
etchings by this artist, from his own designs, among
which are the following:

A set of six mountainous Landscapes, with figures, in-
scribed J. Savery f fee. Nic. de Clerc. exc.

A Land.scape, with a Stag-hunt ; J. Savery, fee. H.

A Landscape, with Samson killing a Lion ; J. C. Viss-
cher, exc.

SAVERY, Roelandt, theson of Jakob Sarery the
elder, was born at Courtrai in 1576, and instructed
by his brother, J akob the younger. It has been sup-
posed that he was afterwards a disciple of Paul Brill ;
but this cannot be reconciled with chronology, as
that artist had left Flanders for Italy, where he
passed the remainder of his lifo, before Savery was
of an age to profit by his instruction. The resem-
blance of his style to that of Brill is not more ap-



parent than to that of Brueghel, and other Flemish
landscape painters of the time. Savery visited
France in the reign of Henry IV., by whom he was
employed in the royal palaces. Soon after his
return to the Low Countries, he was invited to the
court of Prague, by Rudolph II., in whose service
he passed a great part of his life. By the direction
of the Emperor he travelled through the Tyrol,
where the scenery was entirely to his taste. The
studies he made there were of great use in his later
works. After the death of the Emperor, he settled
at Utrecht, and died there in 1639. Works :

Amsterdam. B. Museum. Orpheus.

„ „ landscape with Hunt.

Dresden. Gallery. Hunting a Boar,

„ „ A Mountain Torrent.

1480, at Brescia. Very little is known of his life,
but he is said to have pursued his profession for
pleasure rather than for gain. He was at Venice
in 1621, OS he went there from Treviso to finish
a painting for the altar of San Niccol6, which had
been left unfinished bj' Fra Marco Pensabene.
This picture rejresents an enthroned Virgin and
Child with Saints. He was fond of introducing
evening or night effects into pictures of a sacred
