Belgian poet, philosopher and surrealist photographer who heavily influenced the Belgian Surrealist School of which he was a member.
He was a friend and associate of fellow artists Louis Scutenaire, Marcel Mariën and René Magritte - whom he was a major influence upon.
Some 19 surrealist photographs, produced by Nougé between 1929 and 1930, have been published and displayed posthumously notably, and most recently, at the Edinburgh Art Festival 2009.
A number of his poems have been translated into English by Robert Archambeau and Jean-Luc Garneau, and appear in Samizdat (poetry magazine).
He died on 6 November 1967.
