Sarkis Pitzak ( 14th century )

Sarkis Pitzak was another artist from the Cilicia school of miniature painting, but in his time, in the fourteenth century, it was already showing signs of decline. Fifteen signed works of his are known. 

Among them is the Gospel illuminated by eight different illuminators, including the famous Toros Roslin, the whole under the control of Sarkis Pitzak. Pitzak painted a great number of miniatures himself, but his style is stiffer but his style is stiffer, and compared with Toros Roslin less universal, less open to nature and the world of people around him.
