His friend, the photographer Jef Van Eynde, visited him that summer. We were allowed to take a look at a new series of small paintings in his studio, Van Eynde recalls in his postscript to this volume. In their startling simplicity, these had been reduced right down to the essential. Some of them just had an oversized hook for a hanger, with the canvas simply wrapped around a wooden board. De Keyser died in October 2012, and Van Eyndes photographs of the paintings and the titular wall upon which they were arranged are the only documentation of his intentions for the Zwirner show. This intimate volume gathers these alongside portraits of De Keyser at home and in his studio.
