Francis Maere Fine Arts

The participation of Francis Maere Fine Arts at this years’ Brafa will be once again very surprising. For more than 25 years now the gallery is specializing in Belgian and European Art of the late nineteenth – beginning twentieth century. Paintings, works on paper and sculptures are presented in a sophisticated way and most of them have a private provenance, meaning not having been on the market in the last 50 years. An astonishing “interior with mirror” by Léon Spilliaert is one of the highlights. Created in 1908, the artist’s most creative period, and in the same private collection since the 1930ies... 

Press release BRAFA 2023 - Francis Maere Fine Arts


Francis Maere Fine Arts was founded in 1995, specialising from the start in Belgian art dating from 1880-1950. With roots on the banks of the famous river Lys, the gallery has focused from the start on artists from Sint-Martens-Latem and the surrounding area. Movements covered stretch from late 19th century plein-airism to impressionism and luminism, symbolism, expressionism and surrealism, right up to the first abstract art movements in Belgium. Since its creation the gallery has participated in numerous art fairs in Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp, Kortrijk and Amsterdam. In 2011 Francis Maere opened a new gallery in Ghent on the first floor of the Hotel Falligan, an 18th century ‘Hôtel de Maître’. The renovated premises have inspired a new focus on modern and contemporary movements. The gallery’s primary aim is to promote Belgian art through exhibitions, publications and joint ventures at home and abroad. Francis Maere is an active member of ROCAD.be.
