Luc Tuymans: Allo!Contemporary paintings by the Antwerp-based artist, Luc Tuymans, go on display at David Zwirner's brand new Mayfair gallery, his first opening in Europe. Entitled, Allo!, the exhibition - Tuymans's first solo show in London since his 2004 retrospective at Tate Modern - includes works inspired by the final scene from the 1942 film adaptation of W Somerset Maugham's 1919 novel The Moon And Sixpence. The last scene of the film portrays Paul Gauguin as an English painter and it is from this still Tuymans has worked. Speaking to The Guardian art critic Adrian Searle when Allo! was displayed as part of A Room for London, Tuymans described his original painting - from which a whole series of works have evolved - as, "his joke on modernism, dealing with fake ideas of the new, the exotic and the colourful".
