Jean-Damascène Sallusti (An Deyi) (d. 1781) was an Italian missionary to China, as well as a court painter under the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing dynasty.
A member of the Augustinian order, and later a Jesuit, Sallusti was (somewhat controversially) appointed Bishop of Beijing in 1778, a position he held until his death in 1781. As a painter, he was a contemporary of Giuseppe Castiglione and Ignatius Sichelbart, and with them was responsible for the creation of the Emperor's "Battle Copper Prints", commemorating the I-li campaign. Work by Sallusti is held in the collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art.
