Famous for putting the works of Monet and Picasso on display in the past, it has been another smash hit at the Grand Palais, this time exhibiting the works of famous American artist Edward Hopper.

Celebrated for capturing the landscapes of the US East Coast as well as the 1942 painting ‘Nighthawks’, Hopper is famous for his fascinating range of oil paintings as well as his work with watercolours and etching.

The retrospective drew as many as 782,000 people, just shy of the 783,000 which flocked to the venue to explore the Picasso exhibition. However, it proved no match for when the works of Monet came to the venue, a feature which entertained a massive 913,000 visitors.

The news further bolsters the French capital’s flourishing relationship with the arts, one which you are free to explore through a stay in one of the many hotels in Paris.
