Edward Hopper exhibition extended till 03 february
Due to its success, the Grand Palais extends the retrospective on Edward Hopper (1882-1967). It's definitely one not to miss! The museum will be open from 9am to 11pm from the 26 January till 31 January and continuously open to public (throughout the day and night) from 01 February (9am) to 03 February 2013 (11pm), thus opening 62 hours !
Paintings by Edward Hopper (1882-1967) have the deceptive simplicity of myths, a sort of picture-book obviousness. Each one is a concentrate of the hypothetical knowledge and dreams conjured up by the fabulous name of America. Whether they express deep poignancy or explore figments of the imagination, these paintings have been interpreted in the most contradictory ways. A romantic, realist, symbolist and even formalist, Hopper has been enrolled under every possible banner. The exhibition at the Grand Palais seeks to shed light on this complexity, which is an indication of the richness of Hopper’s oeuvre.
