Raoul De Keyser: The Last WallRaoul De Keyser: The Last Wall

Published by MER. Paper Kunsthalle.
Afterword by Barbara Weiss, Kasper König. Photographs by Jef Van Eynde.

In the summer of 2012, the acclaimed Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser (1930-2012) was preparing a show with David Zwirner, planned for March 2013. His friend, the photographer Jef Van Eynde, visited him that summer. "We were allowed to take a look at a new series of small paintings in his studio," Van Eynde recalls in his postscript to this volume. "In their startling simplicity, these had been reduced right down to the essential. Some of them just had an oversized hook for a hanger, with the canvas simply wrapped around a wooden board." De Keyser died in October 2012, and Van Eynde's photographs of the paintings and the titular wall upon which they were arranged are the only documentation of his intentions for the Zwirner show. This intimate volume gathers these alongside portraits of De Keyser at home and in his studio.

Raoul De Keyser: Terminus Drawings, 1979-1982

Published by Steidl.

This book documents the artist's 2009 exhibition at David Zwirner in New York. Featured are 50 pieces which make up two complementary bodies of work: recent paintings (most from 2008 to 2009) and drawings (created from 1979 to 1982 made on different types of paper and diverse media, including pencil, ink, watercolor, acrylic and oil chalk). Modest in size, De Keyser's works have a special intimacy that derives from the physical characteristics of the medium itself, as well as the tension created between plane and depth, figure and ground.

Paintings 1964-2008

Published by Hatje Cantz.
Edited by Bernard Dewulf. Text by Christoph Schreier, Larry Rinder.

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.”

Raoul De Keyser: WatercoloursRaoul De Keyser: Watercolours

Published by Walther König, Köln.
Text by Ulrich Loock. Introduction by João Fernandes.

Raoul De Keyser's watercolors are a lesser known aspect of his output. Sharing the formal concerns of his paintings, and likewise triggered by specific observations and circumstances, they also offer a readier forum for experimentation than the paintings. This publication presents 59 of De Keyser's watercolors, made between 2000 and 2008.

Raoul De Keyser: Retour 1964-2006Raoul De Keyser: Retour 1964-2006

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Paul Van Calster. Text by Steven Jacobs.

This substantial new volume offers a broad and representative picture of the oeuvre of the important Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser, who began his artistic career in the mid-1960s but did not gather international recognition for his abstract canvases until the late-80s. Consequently, much of his early work was never documented. For this volume, author Steven Jacobs spent years charting the early work, tracking it down and having it photographed. More than two-thirds of De Keyser's previously unseen work is documented here for the first time, alongside the artist's most important works and many canvases made since 2000. De Keyser is represented in New York by David Zwirner gallery. Of his 2004 exhibition there, Artforum's Michael Wilson wrote: "De Keyser has often been described as a "painter's painter," which might seem like faint praise but is accurate enough: The pleasures offered by his work are distinctly grown-up, unspectacular, refined, and satisfying. The influence of Miro and Klee is undeniable, but De Keyser remains contemporary in his concentration on the fragmentary and the left-behind, in his implicit acknowledgment of the impossibility of permanence or completion. His palette is timely too, often sharing celebrated countryman Luc Tuymans' dusty greens, pinks and creams."

Raoul De Keyser: 1980-1999

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Steven Jacobs. Essays by Bart Cassiman, Dirk De Vos, Roland Jooris, Ulrich Loock, Hans Rudolf Reust, Gregory Salzman, Roberta Smith, Wim Van Mulders.

Raoul De Keyser's mainly abstract art is remarkable for its dimensional realism--that is, its connection of the subjective and objective dimensions of experience. De Keyser personalizes abstraction, he gives it a human face; many of his pictures include motifs drawn from his immediate surroundings or his own personal experience. Instead of searching for an overarching formal principle--as did the pioneers of abstraction from Kandinsky's time through the 1960s--De Keyser attunes his art to the significance of improvisation and chance in all life, and contemporary life in particular. Thus we find in the art of Raoul De Keyser much of the contingency, inconsistency, textual precariousness, modal variety, particularity, unpredictability, disorder and flux that we find in our daily lives. This catalogue, published on the occasion of a touring exhibition of De Keyser's work, documents in sumptuous reproductions the artist's oeuvre over the past twenty years.
