Edward Hopper at the Grand Palais

edward-hopper-room-in-new-york

I noticed recently that the great American painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is having a retrospective in Paris of most of his works, current until 28th January 2013. He is one painter I’ve never had a real passion for, though recently I was looking at his work and how he used the figure in interiors and became entranced again. His paintings hover in world between abstraction and realism which gives them a metaphysical quality which I love.  Now I really want to go to Paris but don’t know if we’ll get there. It’s a big incentive to go back to Paris though.

Here’s a good short description of the exhibition and Edward Hopper’s influences written by the curator of the Paris exhibition Didier Orringer. And 1 minute video.
