Exhibition “Edward Hopper” at Fondation Beyeler Closes on Sept. 20
Exhibition “Edward Hopper” at Fondation Beyeler in Riehen near Basel, Switzerland closes on Sept. 20, 2020.

The successful “Edward Hopper” exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Riehen near Basel, Switzerland is drawing to a close. More than 200,000 visitors were able to enjoy the paintings of this major American artist, whose work was given unexpected topicality by the coronavirus crisis – in the press and on social media, Hopper was repeatedly referred to as “a painter for our times.”

His iconic landscapes dating from 1909 to 1965 are on view at the Fondation Beyeler until Sept. 20, 2020. The Fondation Beyeler will celebrate the last evening of its popular “Edward Hopper” exhibition on Sunday Sept. 20 with extended opening hours until 9pm, a drinks bar and live music in the Berower Park Pavilion.

Edward Hopper (1882–1967) is widely acknowledged as one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. In Europe, he is known mainly for his oil paintings of urban life scenes, some of which have become highly popular images. Less attention has so far been paid to his landscapes.

Surprisingly, no exhibition to date has dealt comprehensively with Hopper’s approach to the American landscape. This will also be the first time Hopper’s works are shown in an exhibition in German-speaking Switzerland. Originally planned until 17 May and then extended through 20 September, the Fondation Beyeler’s extensive exhibition presents Hopper’s iconic landscape paintings as well as a selection of watercolours and drawings.

Last chance also for film fans

The short film Two or Three Things I Know about Edward Hopper, shot by renowned filmmaker and photographer Wim Wenders, is on exclusive view at the museum in compelling 3D quality until 20 September. The film is Wenders’ personal tribute to Edward Hopper, who made a lasting impression on him and influenced his cinematic work.
