Pieter Xavery

 (1647 - after 1674)
Pieter Xavery was active/lived in Netherlands.  Pieter Xavery is known for sculpture.

Biography   Pieter Xavery


One of the most prolific and original genre sculptor was Pieter Xaveri.  The course of his life is shrouded in mystery: thought to be from Antwerp, he studied maths at the University of Leiden in 1670 and married in the same city before disappearing in 1674.

His earliest dated work is from 1667, and the latest 1673, suggesting he was only active for a few years.  Xaveri executed one of the few documented commissions for genre sculpture, a set of terracotta groups forming two quibbling parties in front of a magistrate.  It was made for the Vierschaar of the Leiden town hall, a space designed in its entirety by Xaveri.
