De Maertelaere was mainly a painter, although he also produced some
sculptures and we have very beautiful drawings from his early years.
Finally, he also worked out some posters for the socialist movement in
More than 250 works by Achilles De Maertelaere are known in total. A part is only known through a collection of old sepia photos that he took himself or had taken, and where he often signed on the back. Sometimes he also mentions a title. Sometimes there is also some other information mentioned (the person depicted, etc.). Regularly a place name is added with pencil, probably the place where the work was then located.
