Lucebert, or Lucebertus Jacobus Swaansdijk (Amsterdam, 1924 - Alkmaar, 1994), was a poet and painter. Lucebert was a committed artist. His criticism of traditional disguising art earned him the nickname 'Emperor of the Fifties'. The Fifties was a group of poets who caused a stir in the years of the same name by dealing with the aesthetics that were common at the time. Lucebert has won both literary and art prizes. He is also the author of the line of poetry 'Everything of value is defenseless', a work of art that has been in Rotterdam since 1979.
