Life and works[edit]

His main working period was 1130–1150, in the area of Stavelot and the Meuse valley, in what is now Belgium.

He might have learned the art from Rainer of Huy.[1]

His style was Mosan art, specialising in reliquary and iconographic art. His shrine of Pope Alexander I is preserved in the Royal Museums of Art and History.

It was suggested that he was the teacher of Nicholas of Verdun.
