Fotografía y pintura. El tema.Albert Levy photographer Edward Hopper painter

Muchas veces pintura y  fotografia, o fotografía y pintura, comparten el mismo tema e, incluso, se aproximan al punto de vista artístico ante el mismo objeto.
En este caso 
  • Fotografías de Albert Levy (1844-1907)
  • Cuadros de Edward Hopper (1882-1967)
Desconozco si  Hopper conocía la obra de Albert Levy pero pienso que uno de ellos, Levy, francés de nacimiento, fotografió las casas del paisaje americano  como tema importante en su obra.
Otro, Edward Hopper, años después, pintó el mismo tema con puntos de vista, en mi opinion, semejantes. Es decir, eligió casas, normalmente aisladas, muchas veces sin gente, en medio del paisaje. Ambos dignificaron este paisaje americano.
En cierto modo a Hopper se le considera uno de los creadores de este paisaje que, sin embargo, los fotógrafos ya lo habían recogido con sus cámaras años antes.
Es decir, dos o muchos artistas, pueden ver, con sus caracteristicas personales, un tema de manera semejante.
Quizás también haya influido el ser dos artistas con formación en Francia y Estados Unidos.
Albert Levy, francés de nacimiento, realizó gran parte de sus fotografías en Estados Unidos. Edward Hopper estuvo varias temporadas en Francia ( París).

English


Often painting and photography, photography and painting or share the same theme and even approach the artistic point of view to the same object.

In this case

     Pictures of Albert Levy (1844-1907)

     Paintings of Edward Hopper (1882-1967)

Hopper knew know if Albert Levy's work but I think one of them, Levy, French-born, photographed the homes of the American landscape as an important theme in his work.

Another, Edward Hopper, years later, he painted the same subject with views, in my opinion, similarss. That is, elected houses, usually isolated, often without people in the landscape. Both dignified the American landscape.

Somehow Hopper is considered one of the creators of this american landscape, however, the photographers had already gathered with their cameras years ago the same points of view

That is, two or many artists can do with their personal characteristics, a topic in  similarly artistic manners
 The two artists were being trained, and lived, in France and the United States.

Albert Levy, a Frenchman by birth, did much of his photographs in the United States.
Edward Hopper spent several seasons in France (Paris
).

 ....... It is divided chronologically into two main parts: the first section covers Hopper’s formative years (1900-1924), comparing his work with that of his contemporaries and art he saw in Paris, which may have influenced him...........
