Edward Hopper is one of the principal American painters of the 20th century. His work is the expression of his singular view of modern life. Although he started out as an illustrator, he is today best known for his oil paintings, which show a keen interest in colour and the interplay of light and shadow. For this exhibition, which takes place at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen, Switzerland, the focus is on his paintings, which were created between 1910 and 1960 and depict huge natural and urban landscapes of America. A key theme to better understand his work and its reception. More information on the Fondation Beyeler website.
