If you find yourself in Paris over the holidays (lucky you) you may want to head over to the Paris’ Grand Palais and view the Edward Hopper retrospective. Hopper’s “dark sensibilities helped him give expression to the bewilderment and discouraged feelings of Depression-era Americans.”
Edward Hopper’s work was so profoundly moving in color and subject matter that we felt compelled to include him our recent book: Pantone : The 20th Century in Color. Below are a few excerpts
“Edward Hopper was thirty-one before he sold his first painting-and forty-one before his career took flight.”
“…An accomplished technical artist, Hopper handled landscape, portraiture, and architecture with equal aplomb. What intrigues viewers, however, is not his technique, but the undeniable sense of loneliness Hopper creates with it. ”
“Hopper’s disquieting emptiness is rendered in paradoxically full-bodied tones of teal and emerald, ruby and amber, and in an earthy brown.”
