Louis (Lou) Franciscus Asperslagh (The Hague, 12 June 1893 - Leuven, 9 November 1949) was a Dutch graphic artist, glazier, painter, draughtsman, etcher and poet. Asperslagh commenced his education with painter Jan Schouten in Delft and then studied at the academy of Delft, where he was taught by Jan Toorop (1858-1928).
In 1928, he started his own studio together with his brothers Alex and Henk, both also glaziers. Of these three brothers, Henk Asperslagh (1906-1964) stayed in his own country while Alex Asperslagh (1901-1984) left for Brazil. Asperslag soon gained international fame. In 1928, he won the silver medal at the international exhibition in Paris. Asperslagh worked in Leiden until 1913, in The Hague in 1914 and then again in Leiden until 1915 and subsequently in The Hague until 1933. In 1934, Asperslag moved to Leuven in Belgium and he worked in Heverlee until 1948 and in Linden until 1949.
Asperslagh belonged to the pre-war school of Catholic glaziers, the Limburg School, of which Joep Nicolas and Charles Eyck formed the core. His study on windows in French cathedrals made him a master in applying colour and light variations. After 1934, Lou Asperslag crafted a lot of glass creations in the Leuven area.
