Pieke Dassen

Finally the time had come. On Friday 23 September 2011, on his 85th birthday, Pieke Dassen received his plaque on the facade of this building, where he lived and worked for many years. Pieke, who died in 2007, was a versatile artist, but in Maastricht, besides his carnival paintings, he was best known as a puppeteer in his 'poesjenelle-cellar' and nationally on TV as August in Ome Willem's Film.

The bronze relief, designed by Jonas van der Vosse, came about at the initiative of Solange and Mia Dircke, although they had originally opted for a statue. A large group of interested people attended the unveiling ceremony, where Pieke's giant image looked on and saw that it was good.
