"It is about creating a vacuum. Each drawing and every work I make is supposed to bring about a vacuum, which I also encounter as a foreign object." (Luc Tuymans, translation of quote after: Kritisches Lexikon der Gegenwartskunst, edition 56, issue 32 (4/2001), p. 2): Ever since his participation in the documenta 9 in Kassel in 1992 the Belgian Luc Tuymans has become one of thew most sought-after artists on the international art market. His works were part of numerous one-man shows and group exhibitions. In 2003 the Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, and the Kunstmuseum St. Gallen dedicated comprehensive shows, over the following years, one-man shows in Tate Modern, London (2004), the Frankfurt Städel (2009) and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago (2011) followed.
