Padre Sebastiano is a 1904–1906 painting by John Singer Sargent. It is part of the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.[1]

The painting depicts Father Sebastiano, an Italian priest whom the artist met in Giomein, a village in the Italian Alps. The subject had a serious interest in botany, hence the wild flowers covering his bed.

The work is on view in the Metropolitan Museum's Gallery 770.
