Dead Skull has been published on the occasion of the inauguration on May 17th, 2010 of a 40-square-meter stone mosaic by Luc Tuymans, located in front of the MAS (Museum aan de Stroom), the newly built archaeology & history museum of the City of Antwerp. The image picked by Luc Tuymans for the immense mosaic square is that of his own 2002 painting Dead Skull, now at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. This Tuymans work points to the history of the city of Antwerp, by using as its source image, a commemorative 17th-century stone plate - affixed to the facade of Antwerp Cathedral - in memory of Quentin Metsys (1466-1530), an Early Renaissance painter and "founder" of the Antwerp School of Painting.
