Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum presents an exhibition of the American artist Edward Hopper. You can visit it until 16 September.
This exhibition brings together the largest and most ambitious selection of works by the US artist ever to be shown in Europe, with loans from different museums and institutions.
The exhibition, that will be held first in Madrid and will travel to Paris later, includes 73 works and offers an analysis of Hopper’s work divided in two principal sections. The first part begins with Hopper’s time in the studio of Robert Henri at the New York School of Art and covers his training years. Paintings, drawings and watercolours are displayed alongside various works by other artists that influenced Hopper, including Henri, Félix Vallotton, Walter Sickert, Albert Marquet and Edgar Degas.
The second section focuses on the artist’s mature work and is arranged thematically in order to emphasise the most frequently recurring themes in his work, following also a chronological flow.
