Belgian sculptor Frans Lamberechts initially produced figurative works and, after World War II, moved to abstract works. He resided from 1916-32 in France and was active in the restoration of old buildings. Lamberechts was educated at the Academy of Sint-Jans in Molenbeek (1925-29) and Brussels (1932-34). Later he settled in Jette, a suburb of Brussels. His first works were moderate expressionistic and monumental sculptures. After World War II Lamberechts introduced polyester sculptures, and later taught at the Hogere Rijksschool for Fine Arts in Etterbeek.
