THE PAINTER :
Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life.

"In this extract from her new book, The Lonely City, Olivia Laing explains why Edward Hopper’s urban scenes so expertly capture the experience of loneliness."

"Exceptionnel : Edward Hopper, du 10 octobre 2012 au 28 janvier 2013 au Grand Palais, la première grande rétrospective à Paris consacrée au peintre américain !"
"There is a certain fear and anxiety
in the things that one sees
I’m after ME
Trees look like theatre at night.
It’s all cerebral invention
The loneliness thing is overdone
Freud says the devil is a woman
They are entirely human
I think it will come true,
But no one can tell when"
