toretto died at Venice on 31st May, 1594.

ROBUSTI, MARIETTA, the daughter of Jacopo
Robusti, born at Venice in 1560, was instructed
in art by her father, and devoting herself to
portrait painting as an art suited to her sex, she
acquired considerable reputation. She painted
many of the principal personages at Venice, but
her celebrity was not confined to her native
country. She was invited to the court of the
Emperor Maximilian and to that of King Philip II.
of Spain; but her father's affection prevented an
acceptance of either invitation. She died in 1590.

ROCCA, ANTONIO, painter, practising in Italy
about the middle of the 17th century. The de-
tails of his life and works are unknown, but he
is mentioned by various writers of his age as a
foreign artist of much excellence, working in Rome
and in Piedmont. He is said to have been a monk,
and to have died at Rome about 1660.

ROCCA, DANIELE JACOPO, painter, born at Rome.
He was a pupil of Daniele da Volterra, and was an
irtist of mediocre talent. He died at Rome in
1600, at a very advanced age.

younger and MICHELE DA PARMA, was born at
Parma in 1671. He practised in Rome, and died
some time after 1751. He was gifted with some
talent, and worked in the manner of P. da Cortona.
In the Munich Gallery there is an ' Adoration of
the Shepherds ' by him.

ROCCADIRAME, ANGELO, painter, born at
Naples in 1396. Several of his works are to be
found in the churches of his native city, among
the best is an 'Archangel Raphael' in SS. Severino
e Sosio.'

ROCHARD, FRANCOIS T., a miniature painter,
born in France in 1798. He studied in the Paris
Academy, and about 1820 migrated to London,
where he exhibited for many years at the Royal
Academy. He died at Netting Hill in 1858.

ROCHAUD, SIMON JACQUES, a French miniature
painter, the elder brother of F. Rochard, was born
in Paris in 1788. He entered the Ecole des Beaux
Arts in 1813, and studied under Merim^e and
Isabey. After practising in Paris he settled in
England, where he obtained a large and fashionable
connection. He exhibited at the Royal Academy
for many years, but in 1850 retired to Brussels,
where he died in 1872. He was nicknamed
"Mahogany Rochard," from the curious dull red
flesh colour he so often used.

ROCHE, BENEDICT, painter, born at Valencia.
He was a pupil of Gaspar de la Huerta, and it is
said that his works were sometimes mistaken for
those of his master. He died in 1785.

ROCHE, JEAN, (or BROCHE,) a French painter,
born at Carcassonne. In 1365 he painted several
pictures for the ' Eglise des Domes' at Avignon.

ROCHE, SAMPSON TOWGOOD, miniature painter,
practised at Bath early in the 19th century. He
exhibited at the Academy in 1817, but his practice
seems to have been purely local.

French engraver and etcher, born April 1, 1824,
at Fontenay-le-Comte (Vendee); was a pupil of J.
Ouvrie and J. L. Petit ; as an etcher he was self-
taught ; one of the most notable architectural
etchers on a large scale, his ' Notre Dame,' ' Palais
de Justice, Rouen,' ' Chenonceaux,' and other
plates being well known. He obtained medals in
1865 and 1868, a second-class medal in 1872, and
the Legion of Honour in 1874. He died at Fon-
tenay, July 1, 1900.

ROCHETET, MICHEL, a French painter of por-
traits and historical subjects, who flourished in the
16th century, and worked at the decoration of the
Louvre, and of the palace at Fontainebleau, under
the direction of Primaticcio.

ROCHFORD, P. DE, a native of France, flourished
about the year 1720. He engraved several of the
plates for the large folio collection of ' Views of the
Palace and Gardens of Versailles,' published by
P. Menant. He also engraved some prints from
the pictures of Jean Baptiste Santerre, and other
painters. He resided some time in Portugal, where
he died.

ROCHIENNE, PIERRE, a French engraver on
wood, who flourished about the year 1551. In
conjunction with J. Ferlato, he executed a set of
very indifferent wood-cuts for the New Testament,
in Latin, published in 1551. He also^engraved some
cuts for the ' Legende doree,' published in 1557.

ROCHUSSEN, KAREL, Dutch painter and en-
graver; born at Rotterdam, August 1, 1814; a
pupil of W. J. J. Nuijen and Waldorp ; excelled as
