Edward Hopper at Complesso del Vittoriano

Held by some to be a story-teller, by others to be the only artist capable of creating a “freeze frame” of a panorama or a human life. It was Edward Hopper himself (1882-1967) – the best known and most popular American artist of the 20th century – a reserved, taciturn man and a lover of sea views and of the bright light in his spacious studio, who best explained his poetics: “If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.”

The exhibition Edward Hopper, opening on 1 October 2016 until 12 February 2017 at Complesso del Vittoriano – Ala Brasini in Rome, Under the aegis of Istituto per la storia del Risorgimento, in collaboration with Assessorato alla Crescita culturale – Sovrintendenza Capitolina ai Beni Culturali, organized by Arthemisia Group in collaboration with the Whitney Museum of American Art of New York, covers the whole span of the output of the celebrated American artist.

From the Parisian watercolors to the landscapes and cityscapes of the 1950s and 1960s, the exhibition curated by Barbara Haskell – curator of painting and sculpture at the Whitney Museum of American Art – in collaboration with Luca Beatrice, showcases Hopper’s skill as a draftsman through more than 60 works, including celebrated masterpieces such as South Carolina Morning (1955), Second Story Sunlight (1960), New York Interior (1921), Le Bistro or The Wine Shop (1909), Summer Interior (1909), and extremely interesting studies (like the study for Girlie Show, 1941): a path that takes in all the phases of his output and all the techniques employed by an artist who is now considered to be a great master of 20th-century painting.

Form always begins with a something. And then if that something occurs in another place, there is slippage involved and what is created as a result develops a parallel existence to the original thing. I have located my art in terms of reducing all objects to the attention they demand. This gives me a good shot at innovation, to put it boldly. -Richard Artschwager Read more
