Location: the captain’s cabin

The Raft of the Medusa instantly reminded Luc Tuymans (b. 1958, Mortsel) of another iconic work based on a true story: El tres de Mayo by Francisco Goya, from 1808. To contrast the two ‘testimonies’, Tuymans displays a fictitious phantasmagoria in the captain’s cabin: a watercolour depicting a marine officer.
