Description


At the age of 19, on a visit to the Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest, a young Luc Tuymans saw the work of El Greco for the first time--an event that would lead him to become one of today's most influential artists. Almost 40 years later, that life-changing experience is recounted and celebrated in The Image Revisited, a publication that acts as both a monograph and a history of art.

Published to coincide with an exhibition of Baroque art curated by Tuymans at M HKA in Antwerp in June 2018, this richly illustrated book includes three conversations Tuymans conducted with art historians T.J. Clark, Hans Maria De Wolf, and Gottfried B hm at museums in Basel, Brussels and Budapest over the course of three years. In the course of fascinating discussions on the work of artists such as El Greco, C zanne, Goya, de la Tour, Titian, Courbet, Mantegna, Hopper, Newman and Richter, what emerges is an exceptional insight into Tuymans' own creative process, and how the great art of the past has inspired and motivated him.
