Overview

Luc Tuymans (born 1958) is one of today’s most widely admired painters, a continuation of the great tradition of Northern European painting and an enduring influence on younger and emerging artists. First published in hardback for the artist’s first full-scale American survey in 2009, and now available in paperback, this is without question the authoritative publication on Tuymans. It features approximately 75 key works from 1978 to the present, and is accompanied by essays analyzing the painter’s main concerns, with particular attention paid to his working process and his adaptation of source materials. Helen Molesworth examines themes of sinister banality, Joseph Leo Koerner writes on iconophobia and iconophilia, Ralph Rugoff considers Tuymans’ recent work and Bill Horrigan examines the artist’s cinematic sources. This book remains not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans’ career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his development.
