Edward Hopper Exhibition, Exclusively in Paris
October 23rd, 2012
Edward Hopper Exhibition: See it at the Grand Palais
The Edward Hopper exhibition is taking place at the Grand Palais, Galeries nationales between October 10th 2012 - 28th January 2013 and will be showcasing a comprehensive collection of the artist's work.
Covering two main elements of his work, this retrospective exhibition will be examining, in great detail, his formative years (1900 - 1924), along with his mature years (up to 1966).
Creating American Realism
The exhibitions formative section contrasts and compares Hopper's earlier works with that of his contemporaries and a cacophony of Parisian influences; whilst the mature section centres on his evolvement into the driving force of American Realism
Delving into the complexities of his work and analysing the contradictory interpretations of his art, the exhibition is looking to offer a complete picture of the artist... even including some of the commercial illustrations he completed as part of a stoic 'day job' before finding success.
Hopper in Paris: Emergence
A large part of Hopper's early development is often attributed to the time he spent in Paris. He was influenced by the character of the city and by the work of Manet and Degas. Degas' hand is particularly noticeable in the creative stroke of Hopper's angles, symmetry and poetic drama.
Throughout his Parisian tenure, Hopper was driven towards impressionism, concentrating his technique on the exploration of harmony and sensual awakening. Back in the US he was noted for his involvement with the Ashcan School... before this collision of styles evolved into his unique area of American Realism to produce some of the most memorable art work ever created.
