Edward Hopper at the Grand Palais

It’s one of the most arty venues of the year. Finally a Parisian retrospective showcasing the famous Edward Hopper (1882-1967), the best-known American realist of the inter-war period, but mostly « the » painter of the middle classes and urban melancholy.

To wit the images in his work: House along the railroad track, man alone in a bar, a window in the night… Points of view and lighting that have cinematographical quality which inspired prominent film directors « Rear Window », by Hitchcock but also Terrence Malick or David Lynch.

The must: buy tickets ahead of time so you don’t have to stand in line

Until 28 January 2013, from 10am to 10p.  Doors close at 8pm Sunday and Monday. Closed all day on Tuesday.
