This book contains two complimentary bodies of Raoul de Keyser’s work: paintings mostly from 2008 and 2009, and
drawings made between 1979 and 1982 in diverse media including pencil, ink, watercolour, acrylic and oil chalk.
Modest in size, de Keyser’s spare works posses an intimacy that derives from the physical characteristics of his chosen
media and the tensions between surface and depth, figure and ground.
Born in 1930 in Deinze, Belgium, where he still lives and works, Raoul de Keyser is one of Europe’s leading painters,
although he has only gained international renown in the last two decades. De Keyser has exhibited extensively, including
a 2004 retrospective at the Whitechapel Gallery in London, and at the Venice Biennale in 2007.
