In addition to German, French and Russian literature, the young artist found key landmarks for artists such as Diego Velazquez, Francisco de Goya, Gustave Courbet and Eduard Manet.
ExhibitionThe Beyeler Foundation will be dedicated to Hopper's iconic works on the endless expanses of American cityscapes. To date, this aspect has rarely been covered in exhibitions dedicated to Edward Hopper, but this is the key to understanding his work and its perception. The exhibition features an extensive and fascinating overview of the multifaceted nature of the work of Edward Hopper.
