Edward Hopper Exhibition: See the work at the Grand
From October 10th 2012 - 28th January 2013 the Grand Palais, Galeries nationales is hosting a comprehensive showcase of Edward Hopper's work.
This retrospective exhibition covers the two main elements of his work; his formative years (1900 - 1924) and his mature years (through to 1966).
Emergence & American Realism
The formative section compares and contrasts his earlier efforts with that of his contemporaries and other Parisian influences; whilst the latter concentrates on his evolvement into what is widely considered to be the finest proponent of American Realism.
The exhibition will delve into the complex aspects of his work and analyse the contradictory ways in which his art has been interpreted over the years.
Hopper in Paris & Beyond
Hopper owes a great deal of his early development to his time spent in Paris; for a year in 1906 and shorter stays towards the end of the decade. The artist was heavily influenced by his surroundings, and by the work of Manet and Degas. The influence of Degas is particularly apparent in the originality of Hopper's angles, symmetry and his flair for poetic dramatisation.
During his stay in Paris, Hopper took up the mantel of impressionism, styling his techniques to explore harmonious balance and pleasure. Whilst back in the US he embraced the Ashcan School of which he had been a founder member. It was this collision of styles that drew out his version of American Realism and produced some of the most famous art works ever created.
