Maes is one of the preeminent Belgian modernists and was closely associated with Jozef Peeters, Pierre-Louis Flouquet, Rene Magritte and Victor Servranckx, among others. This work is from his best period and his paintings of this era also focus on geometric abstraction. Most of his linoleum cuts were published in journals in the 1920s in black and white only.

FRANS MASEREEL

Linoleum cut, 1953, Vorms & von der Gabelentz D155, edition 25. 7 1/16 x 9 7/8 in. Initialed and dated in the plate. Signed, numbered, titled and dated in pencil.

Masereel is probably the best known Belgian expressionist printmaker and he was quite prolific. The signed prints, however, are increasingly hard to find since they were done in very small editions. This is a very good example of his work from the 1950s.
