Sébastien Barras (1653–1703) was a French painter and engraver.


Life

Barras was born at Aix-en-Provence, in 1653. He was a pupil of Boyer d'Aguilles, and studied for some time in Rome. The first edition of the Boyer d'Aguilles Collection, published in 1709, contained 27 mezzotints by Barras, which were replaced by plates engraved by Coelemans in the second edition. He also engraved a portrait of Lazarus Maharkysus, a physician of Antwerp, after Van Dyck.[1]

He died at Aix in 1703.[1]
