JEAN BAPTISTE SANTERRE (1650-1717), French painter, was born at Magny, near Pontoise, and was a pupil of Bon Boulogne. He began life as a portrait-painter, and enjoyed for half a century a great reputation as a painter of the nude. He died at Paris on the 21st of November 1717. His " Portrait of a Lady in Venetian Costume " (Louvre), and his " Susanna at the Bath" (Louvre, engraved by Porporati), the diploma work executed by him in 1704, when he was received into the Academy, give a good impression of Santerre's taste and of his elaborate and careful method.
