RAOUL DE KEYSER – OEUVREPinakothek der Moderne
Sammlung Moderne Kunst
The exhibition of works by the Belgian painter Raoul De Keyser (1930–2012) unites more than 100 paintings from all phases of his career, some of which have seldom or never been shown before. The exhibits are from the artist’s estate as well as around forty public and private art collections in Europe, China, Japan and the USA. The retrospective at the Pinakothek der Moderne is the first museum exhibition in Germany since the artist’s death in 2012. The ease with which Raoul De Keyser frequently defies the conventions of art history is one of the reasons he is so highly esteemed as a ‘painters’ painter’ who continues to inspire following generations of artists to this day.
In collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S. M. A. K.), Ghent.
