Marc Maet’s oeuvre may be divided into three periods. In the early 1980s, it is akin to the Expressionism of the Neue Wilde. While in the late 1980s, he followed the prevailing international painting trends, in the 1990s, Maet evolved towards a powerful and literary style deeply-rooted in the Belgian artistic heritage. Along with Philippe Vandenberg, Fik van Gestel and others, Maet is often regarded as a leading exponent of New Painting in Belgium.
