Edward Hopper tel que vous l'ignoriez | Le Monde

Edward Hopper tel que vous l'ignoriez | Le Monde | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"La rétrospective magistralement réalisée à Paris, au Grand Palais, rend au peintre américain son ampleur et sa variété.

Pour son bonheur et son malheur, Edward Hopper (1882-1967) a peint en 1942 Nighthawks [...] : il en est de Nighthawks comme de la Joconde pour Vinci. A force d'être reproduite entière ou recadrée à des millions d'exemplaires, d'être affichée à l'état de poster ou d'affiche dans des millions d'endroits, la toile a fini par recouvrir à peu près entièrement l'oeuvre, bien qu'elle soit très loin de la résumer."

Little Nemo : Winsor McCay Google Doodle May Be the Best Ever | Techland | TIME.com | Looks -Pictures, Images, Visual Languages | Scoop.it

"The great American cartoonist Winsor McCay gets a great tribute from Google.

Winsor McCay (1869-1934) was one of the first important creators of both comic strips and animation, and a pretty fair political cartoonist to boot. His masterwork was the Sunday comic Little Nemo in Slumberland, about a little kid whose dreams took him to an Oz-like fantasy world."

Edward Hopper & le cinéma | Lausanne 2010

"Lumières irréelles, points de vue cinématographiques... Ce n'est pas un hasard si les "instants suspendus" qui émaillent l'œuvre du peintre américain cinéphile Edward Hopper (1882-1967) inspirèrent Wenders, Jarmusch, Lynch ou même Hitchcock et Antonioni. A l'occasion de la grande rétrospective qui lui est consacrée au Grand Palais (Paris), retour sur les liens ténus entre Hopper et le cinéma."
