Consequently, much of his early work was never documented. For this volume, author Steven Jacobs spent years charting the early work, tracking it down and having it photographed. More than two-thirds of De Keysers previously unseen work is documented here for the first time, alongside the artists most important works and many canvases made since 2000. De Keyser is represented in New York by David Zwirner gallery. Of his 2004 exhibition there, Artforums Michael Wilson wrote: De Keyser has often been described as a painters painter, which might seem like faint praise but is accurate enough: The pleasures offered by his work are distinctly grown-up, unspectacular, refined, and satisfying.

The influence of Miro and Klee is undeniable, but De Keyser remains contemporary in his concentration on the fragmentary and the left-behind, in his implicit acknowledgment of the impossibility of permanence or completion. His palette is timely too, often sharing celebrated countryman Luc Tuymans dusty greens, pinks and creams.
