Overview

Today revered as one of Europe's master painters, Belgian artist Raoul De Keyser (born 1930) first came to public attention in the mid-1960s as a member of the Nieuwe Visie ("New Vision") group, alongside Roger Raveel, Etienne Elias and Reinier Lucassen-a fraternity of painters interested in reanimating earlier strains of European abstraction. De Keyser's abstractions balance austerity and gentleness, and retrospectively seem to evoke Color Field painting and Minimalism; usually modest in size, they have a special intimacy derived from a concoction of quiet compositional tensions and a softness of figuration. De Keyser has been a leading influence on a new crop of generation of painters, including Luc Tuymans, Rebecca Morris and Tomma Abts. A beautifully designed publication, Replay traces the steady arc of a 40-year career, and is the essential monograph on this ultimate "painter's painter."
