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.”
The exhibition, Edward Hopper, opens in Bologna on March 25 and runs through July 24, 2016 at the Palazzo Fava – Palazzo delle Esposizioni. More than 60 works on display will account for the entire period of Hopper’s artistic production, including his Parisian landscape watercolors and paintings of citizens from the 1950s and 60s. Famous masterpieces are featured in the exhibition, such as South Carolina Morning (1955), Second Story Sunlight (1960), New York Interior (1921), Le Bistro or The Wine Shop (1909), and Summer Interior (1909).
The exhibition is Curated by Barbara Haskell – Curator of Paintings and Sculptures of the Whitney Museum of American Art, in partnership with Luca Beatrice, the Carisbo Foundation, Genus Bononiae, and the Arthemisia Group in collaboration with the Municipality of Bologna and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
