Cyr Frimout & Willy Verhegghe: lithograph and poem – Signed – Limited Edition – Belgium - 1992
In 1992, the well-known Flemish artist Cyr Frimout and poet Willy Verhegghe joined forces with 5 numbered lithographs and 5 signed poems. Each collaboration was released in limited editions. This concerns 1 of these cooperative works of art, numbered 105/150.
The beautiful lithography is by Cyr Frimout, the brother of Dirk Frimout who became the first Belgian in space in 1992. Cyr Frimout was born in Poperinge in 1938 and received a teacher training in Plastic Arts at the University of Applied Sciences in Ghent from his teacher Octave Landuyt. After his studies, Cyr Frimout, encouraged by his fellow artist-teacher Antoon De Clerck, settled in Aalter, East Flanders, where he was responsible for, among other things, the stained glass paintings in the town hall. He is a painter, draftsman and screen printer. He dissects the image and rebuilds it like a puzzle. As the brother of astronaut Dirk Frimout, he created the ESA-NASA logo for Spacelab mission one (1979). Successfully participates in numerous exhibitions at home and abroad. Work by Cyr Frimout is in the possession of the Belgian State, the archives of the municipality of Aalter, the Print Room in Brussels and in the Museums of Ypres, Ostend (PMMK), Maastricht, Alabama, Rothenburg and Resena/Italy.
The poem 'Hearing & Seeing Vergaan' is by poet Willy Verhegghe.
Poet and prose writer Willie Verhegghe was born in Denderleeuw on June 22, 1947. Verhegghe was appointed City Poet of Ninove on Poetry Day 2004 because of the quality of his published work, his social commitment and his appearance within the world of poets and writers. Verhegghe has already published about twenty-five collections of poetry, three of which are about and for the benefit of the mentally handicapped, two with anti-war poetry and one about the Marcinelle mine disaster. Above all, Verhegghe is the most important Dutch-speaking cycling poet, not unimportant for a city where the final battle of the Tour of Flanders is fought every year. Although not born in Ninove, he is very closely linked to the life of the Denderstad, which is often reflected in his works.
The work is beautifully framed in a wooden frame with passe-partout.
A rare and precious work of art by 2 Belgian iconic artists!
