Edward Hopper is currently being shown in an exhibition called "Western Motel" at the Kunsthalle in Vienna. Several of his paintings and many drawings/sketches are on display, along with works by various contemporary artists influenced by his work. I was really looking forward to going but ended up disappointed by much of the newer material, of which there was more than by Hopper himself. I liked the videos but was appalled by the installations recreating Hopper's painting settings. At the risk of sounding like a philistine: they were so badly executed, at least visitors should have been allowed to sit in the life-size one and be photographed! Alas, I couldn't find any postcards in the museum shop either.
Has anyone else seen this show yet? What did you think?
