For the first time, the work of Edward Hopper (1882-1967), one of the most appreciated and successfull American artists of the 19th century, isÂ on view in Italy!
From 14th October 2009 to 31st January 2010, the Royal Palace in Milan dedicates a very interesting exhibition to him: 160 works on display, from his best-known paintings (such as Pennsylvania Coal Town, A Woman in the Sun e Second Story Sunlight – chosen for the official poster), to never exhibited ones, as Girlie Show.
Special attention is also dedicated to his preparatory drawings, each one shown near the corresponding final painting; a strategy for catching audience’s attention on artist’s way of working, in which preliminary sketches were a key stage. Visitors will also have the opportunity to marvel at one of his ledgers, also known as Artist’s ledger Books,
