Luc Tuymans is a Belgian artists who emerged in the late 1980s. His work fuses the traditions of Old Master Flemish and Spanish genre painting with a late 20th century sensibility. Ulrich Loock uses Tuymans' installation of exhibitions as a way of mapping key themes. Juan Vicente Aliaga reveals sources and motivations through his dialogue with the artist, whilst curator and critic Nancy Spector explores the narrative possibilities of one painting, Pillows. Tuymans selects Chevengur, a primitivist, magical tale by Russian author Andrei Platonov, and gives a fascinating account of his work in the essay 'Disenchantment'
Van Eyck in detail by Annick Born( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Famed for his focused observation of nature, Flemish painter Jan van Eyck (c. 1395-1441) studied fauna and flora in their natural environment and under carefully chosen lighting conditions, and then achieved a breathtaking and convincing realism in his paintings. Each panel is a collection of minuscule details rendered with superb clarity from foreground to background--or at least that is the impression at first glance. As this book reveals, that is precisely where Van Eyck's exceptional talent lay: He understood that the human brain is able to supplement visual perception where necessary. Here, details from Van Eyck's paintings are organized by such themes as nature, architecture, daily life, fabrics, glass, jewelry and mirrors, and portraits. Opening with a biographical note and an essay on the technique of oil painting on panel, the authors explain the significance of the individual details and how Van Eyck achieved his innovative artistic results. With a preface by contemporary painter Luc Tuymans, this book is an unprecedented look at the work of a popular master
Luc Tuymans : I don't get it by Gerrit Vermeiren( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and Dutch and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Three young writers and exhibition curators - Gerrit Vermeiren, Dieter Roelstraete and Montserrat Albores Gleason - reflect on the challenging artistic and social positions taken by painter Luc Tuymans. Tuymans is currently, if only in terms of market value, Belgium's most prominent contemporary artist. This book is an invitation to the reader, to look beyond the paintings. While Tuymans is and remains a painter first and foremost, a lot goes on in the margins of his paintings, before and after their creation. The artist has recently opened up a part of his artistic practice, in the form of Polaroids and other documents, that was previously largely out of sight. It is now possible as never before to chart his fascinations and working processes." "Tuymans willingly allows himself to be caught engaging with visual culture, using the frozen image to make something with real meaning. As though driven by a fear of boring himself, he allows explanations and misunderstandings to flourish unchecked."--Jacket
The forbidden empire : visions of the world by Chinese and Flemish masters by Luc Tuymans( Book )

10 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

James Ensor by Luc Tuymans( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theatrical, the satirical and the macabre come together in arresting fashion in the art of James Ensor. He was very successful in his lifetime and exerted considerable influence on the development of Expressionism. An innovator and an outsider, he rebelled against the conservative art teachings of the late 19th century academy in Brussels, drawn instead to the avant-garde salons where his radical creative vision could thrive. The imagery of masks and carnivals runs through much of his work, from vibrant colours and flamboyant costumes to an ever-present sense of drama and satire. Curated by Luc Tuymans, this exhibition will present a truly original body of work, seen through the eyes of one of today's leading painters. Tuymans will look back at Ensor's singular career through a selection of his most bizarrely brilliant and gloriously surreal creations.

Andreas Mühe : Obersalzberg( Book )

2 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andreas Mühe (geb. 1979 in Karl-Marx-Stadt, lebt und arbeitet in Berlin), einer der renommierten deutschen Fotografen, ist zu Hause angekommen: mitten in Deutschland, besser gesagt im kollektiven Gedächtnis einer Nation, die nicht aus dem dunklen Schatten ihrer Vergangenheit treten kann. Dort, wo es noch immer schmerzt und die Zeit nicht zu vergehen scheint, am sagenumwobenen Obersalzberg, ist Andreas Mühe mit seiner Kamera auf Spurensuche gegangen, um den Mythos Obersalzberg zu erfassen und die liebste Idylle des Nationalsozialismus neu zu sehen. Seine Archäologie der Erinnerung ist eine Reise in die Gegenwart unseres Bildgedächtnisses, das jene Jahre festgehalten und abgespeichert hat, ohne dass wir vor Augen hatten, was Mühes Bilder uns zeigen. Das in diesem Buch präsentierte Ergebnis ist ein Bilderzyklus, der die Inszenierungswut jener Jahre als endloses Kulissenschieben vor gewaltigem Bergmassiv entlarvt, vor dem die Hauptfiguren des Nationalsozialismus ihr eigenes Theater aufführten. Mit Texten von Luc Tuymans, Hans Georg Hiller von Gaertringen & Matthias Struch sowie Karsten Ehlert. "Mit seinen eigenwilligen, leicht unterkühlten Hochglanz-Porträts der Berliner Mitte ist er bekanntgeworden: der 33-jährige Andreas Mühe, Sohn des verstorbenen Schauspielers Ulrich Mühe. Eine sorgsame Inszenierung und eine ausgefeilte Lichtdramaturgie gehören zu den Markenzeichen seiner Fotografie. Sein neues Projekt ist ein Bilderzyklus zum Obersalzberg. "Meine Aufarbeitung der Geschichte", wie er sagt" (
Luc Tuymans : exhibitions at David Zwirner by Luc Tuymans( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The David Zwirner Gallery in New York has been the base of operations for Luc Tuymans since 1994. At the start of his career, Tuymans committed himself to showing a new series of works there once every two years - a promise that he has never failed to keep. In the meantime, he has achieved international recognition with his paintings, whose tempered style is combined with an often political content that tackles controversial topics ranging from the Holocaust to the Belgian colonial legacy. This book presents the major works of the artist together with commentary and supplemental materials, plus interviews with Helen Molesworth and Madeleine Grynsztejn, Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl and Robert Storr

Luc Tuymans by Luc Tuymans( Book )

10 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Luc Tuymans 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. As a European child of the 1950s, his relationship to painting is inevitably structured by television, cinema and by the lingering effects of World War II; more recent historical preoccupations have included the dramatic turn of world events post-9/11. Tuymans combines a muted palette with deteriorated surface effect and a singular use of cropping, close-up and sequencing--perfect devices with which to undertake his investigation of the pathological, the banal and the conspiratorial. Published in conjunction with the artist's first full-scale American survey, 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 the nature of visual experience in light of Tuymans' recent work, and Bill Horrigan examines cinematic sources. This book is not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans' career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his artistic development."--Publisher's description
