Published on the occasion of the landmark travelling exhibition that commenced at the Wexner Center for the Arts on September 17, 2009 and travelled on to San Francisco, Dallas, Chicago, and Brussels, the artist's home city, in 2010 and 2011. Presents "Luc Tuymans". The single most comprehensive and illuminating retrospective of the immensely influential art of Luc Tuymans. At a time when painting is no longer the dominant art form it used to be, Tuymans remains committedly and defiantly a painter. "Tuymans articulates a Modern tradition that gives equal weight to the dazed German Romanticism of Caspar David Friedrich and the wide-awake Parisian modernity of Manet, bridging a fault line that still divides the soul of Western taste. He is Manet-like in his smart synopsis of borrowed images. His smoldering colors are Friedrichian: Pale blue-greens, wan oranges, dusty lavender, violet, muddy vermillion" (Peter Schjeldahl) . Tuymans famously begins and finishes each of his paintings in a single day (some of those days must be very long indeed) . In the early, preliminary, and tentative hours of each work, he has described the experience as "horrific" (his word) . "It's like I don't know what I'm doing but I know how to do it, and it's very strange" (Luc Tuymans) . Peter Schjeldahl has expressed enormous admiration for this ascetically self-imposed work ethic/method: "Now that - uncertain ends, confident means - is about as good a general definition of creativity as I know. It illuminates and justifies Tuymans' eccentric work rule, with its distant redolence of Jackson Pollock's odd decision to paint in the air above a canvas. He may convey a very dim view of the world today and scant trust in our capacity to cope with it. But if you like painting enough, you will gamely tolerate the bitter flavor of this artist's amazingly intoxicating brew". An absolute "must-have" title for Luc Tuymans collectors. <b><i> This copy is very prominently and beautifully signed in black pen on the half-title page by Luc Tuymans. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. </b></i> 75 color plates supplemented with reference materials. One of the greatest artists of our time. A fine copy. . ISBN 1933045981.

Luc Tuymans: Munchen, in het Koninklijk Atheneum van Antwerpen

Karin Heremans

BAI 2014. Paperback, 240x170mm, 64p, throughout bw and col. illustrations, Fine copy. Including an index. ISBN 9789085866701. In 2003 brandde de voorbouw van het Koninklijk Atheneum van Antwerpen volledig af. Een dubbele ramp, want de restauratiewerken aan de statige negentiende-eeuwse feestzaal op de eerste verdieping waren bijna klaar. Nog een schilderij bevond zich bij de restaurateur. Dat werk, De Allegorie van de Faam, hangt nu opnieuw in de pas gerestaureerde feestzaal. Het werk heeft echter een monumentale, hedendaagse pendant gekregen. <br>Internationaal gerenommeerd kunstenaar Luc Tuymans maakte speciaal voor het Atheneum het magistrale doek Munchen. Net zoals de verdwenen schilderingen in de feestzaal iets vertelden over het onderwijs in de negentiende eeuw, vertelt Munchen een verhaal over het onderwijs in het begin van de eenentwintigste eeuw. Dat verhaal biedt geen antwoorden, maar stelt vooral vragen.
