The Fondation Beyeler’s 2020 spring exhibition will show works by Edward Hopper, one of the 20th century’s most important American painters. The exhibition focuses on Hopper’s iconic representations of the infinite expanse of American landscapes and cityscapes. To date, this aspect has rarely been highlighted in exhibitions devoted to Edward Hopper, yet it is key to understanding his work and its reception. With watercolors and oil paintings dating from the 1910s to the 1960s, the exhibition will provide an extensive and exciting overview of the multifaceted nature of Edward Hopper’s oeuvre.
Organized by the Fondation Beyeler in cooperation with the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the major repository of Hopper’s work.
