Luc Tuymans, the famous Belgian artist gave me an interview on two occasions. The first was in Antwerp in 2011, during the unusual success of his retrospective exhibition in Bozar, the Brussels art palace designed by Viktor Horta. The exhibition in the artist’s homeland, after its mega successful tour of America’s leading museums, was seen by 85,000 visitors.
