A Painting, a Book - a new Reading workshop

From 14 September to 5 October 2013

Edward Hopper
Hotel room (detail),
1931. Oil on canvas
Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza, Madrid

A reading workshop starting in September kicks off our exclusive programme of activities for Friends of the museum. In A Painting, a Book workshop we link literary works with the paintings in the Thyssen-Bornemisza collections. The starting point is the continual connection between literature and art movements throughout history as well as their direct or indirect influence on each other.
For the first session we have chosen to focus on pieces by two contemporary artists Hopper and Cheever looking at their depictions of day-to-day life. The painter and writer share certain characteristics such as realism, an austere technique, and subject matters such as loneliness and transition in both urban and rural contexts.

Registration is open from 3rd September and can be done via the link below online or by calling 0034 91 127 82 22 or 0034 902 760 511. The workshop will be held on three Saturdays between the 14th September and the 5th October from 12.00– 14.00.
