Edward Hopper at the Grand Palais

 In > art culture design

Opening Wednesday is this first retrospective in France of the emblematic American Modernist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). Divided chronologically into two main parts: the first section covers Hopper’s formative years (1900-1924), comparing his work with that of his contemporaries and art he saw in Paris. The second section looks at the art of his mature years, from the first paintings emblematic of his personal style – House by the Railroad – (1924), to his last works (Two Comedians -1966). A romantic, realist, symbolist and even formalist, Hopper has been enrolled under every possible banner and this exhibition seeks to shed light on this complexity.
