Description

Belgian painter Luc Tuymans (b. 1958) has, over the course of his remarkable career, created a distinctive vernacular, and is widely credited with having contributed to the revival of painting in the 1990s. This second volume in a planned three-volume catalogue raisonné of Tuymans’s paintings surveys nearly two hundred works, featuring some of his most iconic canvases, including from his seminal exhibition Mwana Kitoko: Beautiful White Man (2000), derived from the fraught history of Belgian colonial rule of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and The Secretary of State (2005), a portrayal of Condoleeza Rice which conjures the history of racial and sexual prejudice in the United States. Brilliant color reproductions of each painting from this period are accompanied by an illustrated chronology with archival images and installation views of the works in the volume. This catalogue raisonné is a testament to Tuymans’s persistent assertion of the relevance and importance of painting—a conviction that he maintains even in today’s digital world.
