Inverleith House’s exhibition Raoul De Keyser : Paintings 1967 to 2012 is on for one more week, culminating in a talk with art historian Professor Steven Jacobs on the 11th April. The show focuses on different elements of De Keyser’s five decade career, bringing pieces together from family and private collections, as well as International galleries. De Keyser led a quiet life, which is reflected in the subject matter of his paintings, creating works studying monkey puzzle trees or gardening tools, but working between abstraction and figuration.
Raoul De Keyser was born in 1930 in Deinze, Belgium, and died in 2012. His work has been shown as part of many large solo shows around the world, in galleries such as Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (S.M.A.K.), Ghent (2001); Museum Dhondt-Dhaenens, Deurle, Belgium (2002); Museum van Deinze en de Leiestreek, Deinze, Belgium (2007); Fonds Régional d’Art Contemporain Auvergne, Clermont-Ferrand, France (2008); and De Loketten, Flemish Parliament, Brussels (2011).
Raoul De Keyser : Paintings 1967 to 2012 is on at Inverleith House, Edinburgh, until the 12th April 2015.
