"Tuymans' paintings are shot through with the kind of subtle beauty one finds in seashells when the glow of the sun has diminished and the sheen of the water has dried. Their faded sumptuousness nonetheless elicits a kind of consummate chill."
Helen Molesworth, excerpted in Luc Tuymans, published by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Wexner Center and D.A.P.

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Patrizia Dander. Text by Stephanie Rosenthal, Luc Tuymans, Verena Herber.

This volume documents a solo exhibition at the Haus der Kunst in Munich in 2008 by Luc Tuymans (born 1958). While the retrospective assembled 90 representative works from the last 30 years of the artist's career, the strength of the exhibition lay not only in the art displayed, but also in the location: the Haus der Kunst, built on Hitler's orders in 1933, was used to exhibit German art "by and for the people" and quickly became a center of cultural propaganda for the Nazi regime. In this space,Tuymans' works, often concerned with power relations and twentieth-century history, were grouped into "islands of meaning" to create a narrative that would resonate with the museum, and Tuymans further conceived of a site-specific mural. In this volume, Tuymans himself guides the reader through the exhibition and offers new perspective on his works' relations both to each other and to the installation space. The book includes an ex-libris bookplate signed by Tuymans. Limited quantity available.

Edited by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Helen Molesworth. Text by Helen Molesworth, Joseph L. Koerner, Ralph Rugoff, Bill Horrigan.

Luc Tuymans (born 1958) 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. First published in hardback for the artist’s first full-scale American survey in 2009, and now available in paperback, 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 Tuymans’ recent work and Bill Horrigan examines the artist’s cinematic sources. This book remains not only the most comprehensive survey of Tuymans’ career to date, but also the most thorough chronology of his development.

Luc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David ZwirnerLuc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David Zwirner

Published by Ludion/David Zwirner.
Edited by Donna Wingate, Tommy Simoens. Interviews with Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl, Robert Storr, Madeleine Grynsztejn and Helen Molesworth by Lynne Tillman.

The famous David Zwirner Gallery in New York has been a base of operations for the Belgian painter 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 kept, and continues to keep, 18 years on, as his tempered style and political content have steadily garnered him worldwide acclaim. Tuymans’ thematic exhibitions at the Zwirner Gallery have tackled controversial topics, ranging from the Holocaust to Belgium’s colonial past and the hypocrisy of the Disney empire. Luc Tuymans: Exhibitions at David Zwirner 1994–2012 presents the artist’s major works, together with brief commentary, photographs and archival documentation. Interviews with four leading U.S. critics--Ann Temkin, Brice Marden, Peter Schjeldahl and Robert Storr--that were conducted specially for this publication by Kristine McKenna discuss Tuymans’ presence in the U.S.

Luc Tuymans: Graphic Works 1989-2012Luc Tuymans: Graphic Works 1989-2012

Published by Ludion.
Edited by Tommy Simoens. Text by Manfred Sellink.

Graphic Works 1989–2012 offers a retrospective of graphic work by Luc Tuymans (born 1958), arguably the most celebrated Belgian artist working today, whose recreations of historically saturated imagery examine themes of memory and trauma. Using unpublished source material and proofs, Polaroids and watercolors--some from the archives of master printer Roger Vandaele and the artist’s own studio--this book offers in-depth insight into Tuymans’ variety of graphic techniques and his process of analysis and translation of images, color separations and proofs. The volume concludes with an illustrated survey of the artist’s complete graphic work from 1989 to 2012, ranging from a photocopied portfolio with a selection of Tuymans’ early drawings through suites such as The Spiritual Exercises to his masterpiece The Rumor, an installation combining a series of monotypes and a scale model in a single edition.

Luc Tuymans: Dead SkullLuc 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.
Please note that this item is not warehoused in the United States and will ship directly from Europe. The shipping cost is U.S. $270.00 (regardless of location in North America).

Published by San Francisco Museum of Modern Art/ Wexner Center for the Arts/D.A.P..
Edited by Madeleine Grynsztejn, Helen Molesworth. Text by Helen Molesworth, Joseph L. Koerner, Ralph Rugoff, Bill Horrigan.

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.
Born in Mortsel, Belgium, in 1958, Luc Tuymans first exhibited his paintings in 1985, at Palais des Thermes in Ostend. His first U.S. exhibition came ten years later, at The Renaissance Society in Chicago. He has also worked in film and printmaking.

Text by Ottó Tolnai, György Dragomán, Olga Stanislawska, Agata Tuszynska.

Published on the occasion of renowned Belgian figurative painter Luc Tuymans' retrospective exhibition in Hungary and Poland, this volume circumvents the typical monograph format by focusing on the reflections of regional writers, whose perspectives were solicited for being less inhibited and more direct than the typical art historian's. Contributors were granted complete freedom to comment on a single picture, Tuymans' activity as a painter or any other aspect of his personality. The resulting narratives, which are accompanied by a well-considered selection of color reproductions, share the spirit of the pictures and are quite personal and engaging. For example, Warsaw's Agata Tuszynska writes, "The echoes of the Holocaust that permeate my world and are my deepest genealogy are your soil as well. We dig around in ashes and play with smoke. I, with words, you, with images."

Luc Tuymans: EndeLuc Tuymans: Ende

Published by Salon Verlag & Edition.
Text by Udo Kittelmann, Moritz Wesseler.

Belgian-born Luc Tuymans was an essential figure in the painting revival of the 1990s. Curator-critic Jordan Kantor has underscored his importance by noting, "Not unlike Gerhard Richter two decades ago, Tuymans seems to have tapped into a particular mode of seeing and depicting that has unusual resonance. Indeed, these days one can hardly walk into a gallery or art fair with an eye peeled for painting without seeing the 'Tuymans effect'--the profound, if sometimes ineffable, way in which the look, subjects and even fundamental painterly approach of Tuymans' work has saturated a large and increasingly significant territory." This volume is the first to document one of Tuymans' wall paintings, completed for an exhibition at Kabinett für Aktuelle Kunst, Bremerhaven, Germany, which he documented with Polaroids throughout the entire process. The richly illustrated volume, printed in a limited edition of 1000 numbered copies, includes an interview between Tuymans and Udo Kittelmann, Director of the National Gallery Berlin.

Luc Tuymans: I Don't Get ItLuc Tuymans: I Don't Get It

Published by Ludion.
Text by Gerrit Vermeiren.

In this stunning monograph, the internationally acclaimed Belgian painter Luc Tuymans opens up and reveals, in the form of Polaroids, film stills and other source documents, what has up until now been a largely hidden part of his artistic practice--thereby making it possible to chart both the subjects that fascinate him and his rather idiosyncratic working processes. On the one hand, Tuymans' methods are influenced by photographic techniques. The artist would, however, immediately deny this, claiming that the more than 1,000 Polaroids he has used as the basis for his paintings are not photographs--for the emulsion and the chemical formation of the image behave very differently in each. On the other hand, Tuymans' paintings are imbued with cinematic techniques such as the close-up, slow motion, montage and animation. He draws inspiration from cinematic techniques to load the painted image with topicality and pertinence. This volume, whose reproductions were extensively edited by the artist himself, unravels the anatomy of Tuymans' treatment of images. It is an essential addition to any contemporary art library. Tuymans is represented in New York by David Zwirner gallery.

Published by Hatje Cantz Publishers.
Artwork by Luc Tuymans. Edited by Stephan Berg. Text by Konrad Bitterli.

Since the end of the 1980s, Belgian artist Luc Tuymans has been developing an extraordinarily complex work, combining the question of representation--inherent in any kind of painting--with a radical charge of pictorial motives. Grounded in a structure that is coolly figurative and drawinglike, and materials that are always preprocessed and mediated (for example, Polaroid shots, newspaper clippings, film stills), Tuymans creates calm, small-format pictures of cropped landscapes, objects, architecture and seemingly masked people. In their pastel haziness, often primed with white, his pictures evade concrete designation. This book presents a representative selection of Tuymans' works as well as a large group of specially created new works delimited by two central picture motifs: the cycle Die Zeit references the Holocaust, whereas Passion concerns the essence of religious belief.
