He was particularly influenced by Ponscarme, Oudine, Roty and Chaplain. He created an extensive oeuvre of medallic works over his long career that extended into his late years. This book has an introduction in French and Dutch. It catalogues and illustrates Devreese's works with its main text in Dutch. Descriptions of medals identify the manufacturer and, in some cases, the reported mintages of medals. It has an extensive bibliography. Most illustrations are in black and white with a few in color.
