Hopper - The Largest and Most Ambitious Exhibition Ever to be Shown in Europe

Thyssen Edward Hopper
12 June to 16 September 2012

Curators: Tomàs Llorens and Didier Ottinger

The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza and the Réunion des musées nationaux de France are presenting the exhibition Hopper, to be shown first in Madrid then in Paris. It brings together the largest and most ambitious selection of works by the US artist ever to be shown in Europe, with loans from major museums and institutions including the MoMA and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, Philadelphia, in addition to various private collections and with a particularly generous loan from the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. The latter is sending 14 works from the Bequest of Josephine N. Hopper, the artist's wife. The exhibition has also benefited from the collaboration of the Terra Foundation for American Art.
