Présentation en anglais Luc Tuymans is a Belgian artist who emerged in the late 1980s. Tuymans is one of the world's most prominent figures in contemporary painting although he has also worked in other media. His work fuses the traditions of Old Master Flemish and Spanish genre painting with ideas and images drawn from recent history. Tuymans' monochromatic palette and choice of subject matter - domestic interiors, commonplace objects, the margins of history or family portraits - link painting with filmmaking, photojournalism and amateur photography. The source of his imagery, however, some of which derives from documentation of Nazi atrocities, gives his canvases a brooding violence. Modest in scale and sensitive in execution, this work is powerful in its haunting evocation of lost lives and repressed histories. Tuymans' work has featured in many key surveys of contemporary painting, such as 'Examining Pictures', Whitechapel Art Gallery, London, and tour, 1999 ; 'Trouble Spot. Painting' (which he also curated), Museum van Hedendaagse Kunst, Antwerp, 1999 ; and 'Dear Painter, Paint Me', Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, 2002, among others. Contemporary Artists is a series of authoritative and highly illustrated studies of important artists of the late twentieth century. Each title offers a comprehensive survey of an individual artist's work. Different genres of art writing are contributed by an international spectrum of authors who are leading figures in their fields, ranging from art history and criticism to philosophy, cultural theory and fiction. Each study provides incisive analyses and multiple perspectives on contemporary art and its inspiration. These are essential source books for everyone concerned with art today.
