A Portrait of Burgomaster Sebastian Spörlin (1565-1644), Three-Quarter Length, in a black Doublet with his Spaniel called Credit
Sebastian Spörlin was painted by Sarburgh during his time in Basel and must have been an important commission for Sarbugh owing to Spörlin's position as Burgomaster. Spörlin (1565 - 1644) lived his entire life in Basel and from 1588 slowly worked his way up the ladder of officialdom within the City finally becoming Mayor in 1621.
