Edward Hopper

By Gerry Souter

Edward Hopper exprime avec poésie l. a. solitude de l’homme face à cet american lifestyle qui se développe dans les années 1920. S’inspirant du cinéma par les prises de vue ou les attitudes des personnages, ses peintures reflètent et dénoncent l’aliénation de los angeles tradition de masse. Avec ses toiles aux couleurs froides, peuplées de personnages anonymes, l’œuvre d’Hopper symbolise aussi le reflet de los angeles Grande Dépression. A travers des reproductions variées (gravures, aquarelles, huiles sur toile), l’auteur, par une examine tant artistique que thématique, nous apporte un éclairage nouveau sur l’univers énigmatique et torturé de ce peintre majeur.
