Major Hopper exhibition opened in Madrid

17 June '12 by the editors

The exhibition ‘Hopper’ brings together the largest and most ambitious selection of works by American artist Edward Hopper (1882-1967) ever to be shown in Europe.

The exhibition 'Hopper' is the result of a collaborative project between the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Réunion des Musées Nationaux de France with loans from major museums and institutions including the MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, in addition to various private collections and with a particularly generous loan from the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.

The exhibition includes 73 works and offers an analysis of the artist’s work structured into two principal sections. The first section covers the artist’s formative years from approximately 1900 to 1924, represented through a comprehensive selection of sketches, paintings, drawings, illustrations, prints and watercolours that will be complemented by works of artists as Edgar Degas or Walter Sickert. The second section focuses on Hopper’s mature work, from 1925 onwards, and is arranged thematically in order to emphasise the most frequently recurring themes and motifs in his work, while also maintaining a chronological flow.
