Edward Hopper

1882 (Nyack (USA)) / 1967 (New York)

Hopper is the painter of urbanized nature, of small holiday towns, of places with typical architecture that mix Victorian or neo-Gothic facades, petrol stations, prefabs, bungalows, seascapes, gardens, all these ensembles whose singular framing is his trademark. Underground, work, sleep: offices, bars, train compartments, hotel rooms reveal, based on daily reality, an anxiety and anguish where the solitude of beings is revealed, their difficulty in sharing a moment of life, in communicating, just like the artist with Joe, his wife, his muse, model and martyr.
