The American Dream

After one week breakdown of my internet connection and a two days visit of “The American Dream” - American Realism 1945 – 2017 in the Kunsthalle Emden (Emden, Germany) and the Drents Museum (Assen, Netherlands) I will continuing my TE-uploads with an impression of this American Dream.

A remarkable international double exhibition with a spectacular overview of American Realism with work by artists such as Edward Hopper, Andy Warhol, Andrew Wyeth, Alice Neel, Roy Lichtenstein, Stone Roberts, Alex Katz, and Chuck Close
In total, there are more than 200 works of art spread over both museums. The Drents Museum focuses on the period 1945-1965, while the Kunsthalle Emden features works from 1965 to the present. Never before has such a comprehensive overview of American Realism been mounted in Europe.

The painting “Morning Sum” (1952) of Edward Hopper (a.o. Nighthawks) is the focus point of today’s presentation.

◙ The main picture shows a triptych with some visitors admiring the painting “Morning Sun” (1952) from nearby.
◙ The first workshop with two ladies admiring the painting from a distance.
◙ The second workshop a viewer from a distance and one nearby.

■ Main picture: ◙ Triptych from nearby
■ Workshop 1: ◙ From a distance
■ Workshop 2: ◙ From nearby and from a distance

I add the dark frame to the picture to give the posts a screen format of 1920x1080 pixels
The idea is that, if you use the links in the text, you have a full screen image of the picture with the photo in the centre of a dark screen.
This works with the browsers and screens I use, but I’m not sure that everybody will have the same result.
