Symposium: “Did you say Hopper…?”

Presented in conjunction with the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny exhibition Edward Hopper: The Paris Years, 1906–1910, this colloquium on “the Hopper effect” examined the circulation and superposition of Edward Hopper’s images in different artistic and commercial spheres. The people and places painted by Hopper are often seen as icons of American life. Speakers debated the reason for this projection of Americanism on Hopper’s work in light of certain relationships maintained by the French public with an imaginary America. The event was organized by La Passerelle des Arts, École Normale Supérieure, and the Musée d’Art Américain Giverny.
