Roger Hebbelinck (Brussels, 1912-1987) worked as a painter, watercolorist, etcher and filmmaker. He was best known for his etchings. He was a student of, among others, Alfred Bastien, with whom he studied at the Academy of Brussels. He etched a large number of picturesque city corners in historic cities. He also created beautiful etchings based on the works of his colleagues Valerius De Sadeleer and Albert Saverys.
The Sint-Michielsbrug is a stone arch bridge in the center of the Belgian city of Ghent. The bridge is located over the Leie, on the south side of the Graslei and the Korenlei. The current monumental bridge was built in the period 1905-1909 by the architect Louis Cloquet. To the east, the bridge provides the typical view of the three Ghent towers: St. Nicholas Church, the Belfry of Ghent and St. Bavo's Cathedral.
