"Seasonal reading... Amongst other recently published monographs, the revised and enlarged edition of Phaidon's Luc Tuymans, from its Contemporary Artists Series is opportune as it is just in time for his major show at Tate Modern in the Summer of 2004. Indeed Tate will find it difficult to match the breadth and scale of this book in any exhibition catalogue it may choose to produce. Tuymans is rapidly gaining ground as the successor to Gerhard Richter as the History Painter of the late 20th Century, and this book, which amounts to a catalogue raisonne as nearly every one of his paintings is reproduced, goes some way towards confirming his reputation."—Art Monthly
