Celebrated Belgian artist Luc Tuymans is busy working on six large-scale paintings at the Qatar Museums Gallery Al Riwaq on Thursday, ahead of the opening of his major exhibition, Intolerance, on display at the QM Gallery Al Riwaq from October 18.  
The wall paintings are a highlight of Luc Tuymans’ first exhibition in the Middle East, which will run until January 30, 2016.
Presented by Qatar Museums under the leadership of its chairperson, HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, Intolerance includes more than 100 paintings and a selection of works on paper and is the most comprehensive survey of Luc’s career, covering 30 years.
Belgian artist Luc Tuymans, born in 1958, is one of the key figures of a new generation of figurative painters, widely credited with having contributed to the revival of painting in the 1990s and recognised as one of the most important living painters today.
