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.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes Olivier Smolders, "Paul Nougé: écriture et caractère : à l'école de la ruse" (Labor, 1995): "Ceci explique peut-être la mention de « négociant » qui définit la profession du père sur le certificat de naissance de Paul Jules Isidore Alexis Nougé qui naît « le 13 février 1895, à 6 heures du soir, au numéro 39 de la rue du Congrès."
