Master of Rieux

The Master of Rieux was a French 14th century anonymous master sculptor based in Rieux-Volvestre, then an important cultural and spiritual centre. His style spread throughout Languedoc and as far as Catalonia thanks to its quality and stylistic originality. He is noted for his use of sculpture fully in the round, a mannerist and elegant style with hair, beards and folds of drapery demonstrate the sculptor's virtuosity.

His works can be seen in the musée des Augustins in Toulouse and the ceiling bosses of Saint-Maurice de Mirepoix.
