Dead Skull originates from the painting with the same title by Luc Tuymans of 2002 which is owned by the National Gallery of Washington D.C. It was painted after a Polaroid of a carved stone memorial plaque honouring the Antwerp renaissance artist Quentin Matsys (1466-1530), who - so the legend goes - changed from being a blacksmith to a painter, for the love of a girl. Already in the 17th century Matsys was considered the father of the Antwerp School of Painting. Cornelius Van der Geest (1555-1638), a successful tradesman and collector, arranged for the memorial plaque, consisting of a skull and a coat of arms, to be attached to the front of Antwerp's Cathedral of Our Lady. The original plaque is now part of the collection of the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom, which translates as Museum Along the Stream, the new historical museum of the City of Antwerp).

Luc Tuymans: Dead Skull

Published by Graphic Matter
Text by Kate Mayne.

On May 17, 2010, the Museum aan de Stroom (MAS) in Antwerp unveiled a 40-square-meter stone mosaic by the renowned Belgian artist Luc Tuymans (born 1958). The mosaic was based on Tuymans' 2002 painting "Dead Skull," now owned by the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. This painting was in turn based on a seventeenth-century plaque at the foot of Antwerp Cathedral's north tower, commemorating Quentin Metsys (1466-1530), founder of the Antwerp school of painting. On the occasion of the inauguration of Tuymans' mosaic, and under the close supervision of the artist, Graphic Matter in Belgium has published this boxed Dead Skull edition. It contains a screenprint on Somerset Velvet 250-gram paper and a hardback book--available only within this edition--with an introductory essay by Kate Mayne. The edition is limited to 60 copies, numbered and signed by the artist.
