Edward Hopper takes centre stage at a wonderful exhibition at the Grand Palais until 28th January. The event is all the more exceptional given that it is the first time in France that a retrospective of this type has been organised!
Edward Hopper: witness to an era
Make the most of your stay at the Hôtel d’Aubusson to come and admire the 128 works on display! Alongside Edward Hopper’s great classics, such as House by the Railroad, Summer in the City and Nighthawks, you can also discover less well-known, but equally remarkable, watercolours and engravings. In his paintings, produced between 1902 and 1965, Edward Hopper gives us an insight into mid-20th century America.
The country, undergoing major change, inspired the artist to produce works as a kind of testimony, halfway between the reality of the modern world and the dream of an America which would never be quite the same again.
Did you know? No work by Edward Hopper is on permanent display in France! The Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum in Madrid is the only museum in Europe to exhibit one of his paintings, Hotel Room, which is among the works on display at the Grand Palais.
