Edward Hopper is the focus of a major exhibition for the first time in France! While the most famous American painter of the 20th century stayed in Paris on 3 occasions, no retrospective has ever before been devoted to him in the capital.

Edward Hopper : a journey across America

Edward Hopper Grand Palais Paris
This unique exhibition, being staged at the National Galleries of the Grand Palais from 10th October to 28th January, offers visitors a fascinating insight into the United States of the first half of the 20th century. The 128 engravings, watercolours and paintings on display in Paris testify to the wave of modernisation rapidly sweeping through the country. These changes seem to have inspired in Edward Hopper a certain nostalgia, as can be seen in the melancholic expressions on most of his figures, such as the couple leaning against the bar counter in Nighthawks or the woman sitting alone at a table in Automat. These are just two of the American painter’s major works which you can discover at the Grand Palais.
