EDWARD HOPPER, ROUTE 6, EASTHAM | ON LOAN

DID YOU KNOW? 

Our Edward Hopper painting, Route 6, Eastham, is currently on loan to Fondation Beyeler in Basel, Switzerland. During this time, Fondation Beyeler is also temporarily closed to the public until further notice.
 
“The critically acclaimed Edward Hopper exhibition at Fondation Beyeler has been a huge success with the public. Of course, the temporary closing is disappointing news for everyone involved. But the well-being of our visitors and our staff is our top priority at this moment of uncertainty. We kindly ask for your understanding and hope to reopen our museum and the Edward Hopper exhibition in the near future.” – Sam Keller, Director of Fondation Beyeler.
