Part of the famous Belgian "Liege Trio" (Berchmans, Donnay, and Rassenfosse), whose printer Auguste Bernard (1854-1907) played an important role in the ascent of the poster artist in Belgium, Rassenfosse creates clean, effective, well drawn design.
Belgian engraver and painter. He showed a taste for drawing and engraving as a child and later, with the encouragement of his father, who had an art business, he studied occasionally with the Liege painter and engraver Adrien De Witte (1850-1935), a family friend. At this time he became interested in contemporary literature and in the literary review La Jeune Belgique. He also collected the engravings of Felicien Rops whom he met in Paris in 1886, an event which was to prove a decisive influence on his career.
