Tuesday, January 15th at 6 PM in the Raymond Aron Amphitheater, 2nd floor Main building, Porte Dauphine campus.

Paris Dauphine welcomes the Edward Hopper exhibition (currently at the Grand-Palais until January 28th 2013) for an exceptional evening conference, thanks to the Fondation Dauphine-Réunion des Musées Nationaux-Grand-Palais partnership.  

Explore the work of the celebrated American painter thanks to the evening’s speaker, Art historian and official lecturer for the RMN-Grand Palais.

At first glance, Edward Hopper’s paintings charm us with their apparent simplicity and what appears to be a perfect illustration of life in America. But they are more than that. In fac,t Hopper pushes beyond that objective reality to question the American Dream, social change, territory, modern cities, solitude.... Drawing on the cinema and photography but also influenced by Vermeer and Degas, Hopper has been classified under many banners: romantic, realist, symbolist and even formalist. Our guest lecturer will help us discover and make sense of Hopper’s complex and rich work.

Pre-registration for the conference is mandatory.
