About this title


This book compiles the most recent work by Luc Tuymans (born 1958), one of Belgium’s most eminent painters. Accompanying a 2015 exhibition, Luc Tuymans: Birds of a Feather, it shows the artist’s fascination with the Scottish Enlightenment and its thinkers, who believed in the ability of humans to shape their future rationally and whose influence extended as far as the US. Stimulated by a visit to the art collection of the University of Edinburgh, Tuymans created three small portraits of Scottish philosophers, originally painted by the 18th-century portrait artist Henry Raeburn. The theme of the Enlightenment is combined with menacing horror, such as in a monumental dark work, “The Shore,” which alludes to Goya’s pinturas negras, or in the portrait of the murderer and cannibal Issei Sagawa. Acclaimed British novelist Will Self provides a remarkable short story for the publication, while art critic Colin Chinnery contributes an explanatory essay.

About the Author:

Will Self is also the author of The Quantity Theory of Insanity, My Idea of Fun, Cock & Bull, Grey Area, The Sweet Smell of Psychosis, Tough, Tough Toys for Tough, Tough Boys, and Great Apes. He lives in London.

Luc Tuymans was born in 1958 in Belgium. Since his appearance at the 2001 Venice Biennale and Documenta 11, he has fast become one of the most important painters of his generation. He lives and works in Antwerp.
