work in collection
In 1995 De Pont Museum held the first exhibition of work by Luc Tuymans in the Netherlands. This summer the now world-famous Belgian artist will be coming back to Tilburg with a second retrospective, which he has aptly titled The Return.
The exhibition, which has been compiled in very close collaboration with the artist, will comprise about fifty paintings spanning the period from 1975 until the present. This includes several recent works that have not been shown before.
The Return is one of the two major Tuymans exhibitions to be held in Europe this summer. In addition to the presentation at De Pont, he is also working on his first solo show in Italy, which will open at Palazzo Grassi in Venice on 24 March.
