In 1947 he met the Dutch artist Corneille who drew him into the Dutch Experimental Group. Doucet made the cover of Reflex, the second edition of the magazine of this Group. In 1948 he joined CoBrA. He also participated in the famous CoBrA exhibitions in Amsterdam (1949) and Liege (1951). Later on Jacques Doucet painted more and more in an abstract way. His work could be seen regularly at exhibitions in France, Belgium, Denmark and the Netherlands.
