Edward Hopper and the American Landscape exhibition

The exhibition underway at Palazzo Fava in Bologna offers a complete overview of the work of American painter Edward Hopper, from his education to his studies in Paris, where he encountered the Impressionists, from his masterpieces of the ‘30s, ‘40s and ‘50s to his late works.
58 masterpieces from the Whitney Museum in New York, divided into six sections by theme and chronological order, offers a complete overview of the work of one of the greatest representatives of twentieth-century American Realism. Hopper has often been called a story-teller in images, with a predilection for travel and for the suburbs. The places he portrays have no particular architectural value; they are American suburbs, captured at a specific moment in time and crystallised forever.
Places and situations become icons of contemporary America and inspire the landscapes and views appearing in numerous films. In the month of May Fondazione Cineteca of Bologna will screen a series of films at Cinema Lumière demonstrating Hopper’s influence on film, in connection with the exhibition at Palazzo Fava.
