Belgian artist Raoul De Keyser (1930-2012) is primarily known for his painting. Apart from his paintings, De Keyser’s oeuvre also comprises many drawings and watercolors. In addition, he frequently experimented with graphical printing techniques such as silkscreens, lithographs, etchings, and linocuts. Throughout his entire career, De Keyser made about fifty of such works. This limited but nonetheless interesting corpus can be ordered more or less chronologically based on the printing techniques that were used. In a first period, for instance, from the late 1960s to 1976, he mostly worked with silkscreens. In the first half of the 1970s, he also experimented with lithographs whereas in the 1980s and early 1990s, he particularly pore upon linocuts. After the turn of the century, he revisited the silkscreen technique and he also created the only etching of his career.
