The Artist

Pierre Veyrier II (active around 1528-1558), was an enamel artist in Limoges. His name may derive from the town of Veyrier, in the canton of Geneva in Switzerland. Another important work by Veyrier is a triptych of enamel on copper, with nine scenes from the life of Christ. This is in the collection of the Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, Maryland.
