Edward Hopper. "Edward Hopper, the best-known American realist of the inter-war period, once said: 'The man's the work.

EDIT: EDWARD HOPPER. L’autoportrait (1925 - 1930) : maîtrise du cadre et du dessin.


En premier lieu, et parce qu’il est une figure primordiale, l’autoportrait qu’Edward Hopper réalise de lui-même est un manifeste à plus d’un titre. D’abord, parce qu’on associe son travail aux représentations de scènes de la vie quotidienne plus qu’à des portraits et parce que sa figure est rare bien que discrètement présente dans son œuvre. Mais surtout parce qu’il contient en soi, dans la discrétion de sa construction, toute l’attention qu’Edward Hopper porte au cadre et au dessin. Le pinceau est lâche, mais le trait est juste, le cadre faussement spontané est minutieusement calculé. Les lignes de force soulignent le regard fuyant mais attentif, la bouche étrangement close ; le trait dessine un homme qui se détache de son contexte mais le pinceau le fait se fondre en lui.

This diffident son of a Nyack, New York, dry-goods merchant had a long working life, almost all of it in America, and a sober style, some of which came from France and particularly from Manet and Daumier.

One of his few public utterances—in 1927, to the effect that "now or in the near future, American art should be weaned from its French mother"—used to be taken by cultural America-firsters as a manifesto of secession, but it wasn't. Edward Hopper. Edward Hopper déclarait en 1964, en préambule pour une interview sur NBC : "Je sais bien que des peintres contemporains vont manifester le plus grand mépris pour cette citation.

Mais je la lirai quand même. Goethe a dit : "La fin première et dernière de toute activité littéraire, c'est la reproduction du monde qui m'entoure via le monde qui est en moi ; toute chose devant être saisie, reprise et recrée, assimilée et reconstruite sous une forme personnelle et originale".

His etchings began to receive a degree of public recognition, and his oil painting (as in New York Interior, 1921; New York Restaurant, 1922) - if not yet appreciated by curators and exhibition juries - was becoming more inspired. He also began painting watercolours outdoors during the summer at Gloucester, a small town on the Massachusetts coast, except that while other painters were fully absorbed painting seascapes and scenic views, Hopper was fascinated by the large Victorian houses built by rich sea captains during the previous century.
