A major Edward Hopper retrospective just opened in Paris revealing that the 20th century painter famed for his rendering of American life drew inspiration from France. Show curator Didier Ottinger says Hopper was “a lifelong Francophile” who first visited Paris in 1906 and clearly took influence from artists like Henri Matisse. The collection includes some 128 Hopper works alongside 35 comparative works from French artists who influenced him. The exhibit runs through Jan. 28 at the Grand Palais.
