Palazzo Fava, Bologna – ITALY

His paintings told stories and halted melancholic moments, crystallised in time, be it a lonely landscape, an interior, or a narrative figure. Edward Hopper (1882-1967), one of the most popular and well-known American artists of the twentieth century, was a shy and quiet man, a lover of the sea horizons, clarified his philosophy:

“If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint.”
