Sassetta säs-sĕt´tä [key], c.1400–1450, Italian painter of the Sienese school, whose original name was Stefano di Giovanni. A popular artist, he painted many large altarpieces, scenes from the life of St. Anthony (Yale Univ. Philip Lehman Coll., New York City National Gall. of Art, Washington, D.C.), and Journey of the Magi (Metropolitan Mus.), although the authenticity of some of the works attributed to him is dubious.
