It’s almost a fairy tale that Mantaise Béatrice Duroure has been living for a little over a year. “I thought it was a joke the first time the curator of the Edward Hopper House contacted me in January 2023,” says this self-taught painter based in Mantes-la-Jolie (Yvelines) for almost ten years.

From Thursday May 30, 2024, this former illustrator who returned to her youthful passion during the health crisis will be one of the fifty artists exhibited in the American painter’s birthplace, in Nyack (New York State), to mark the 100the anniversary of the marriage of Edward Hopper (1882-1967) to the artist Joséphine Nivison (1883-1968). She will present The Smokehousean acrylic painted in 2017.

“Colors are musical”

“Covid was like a revelation, remembers Béatrice Duroure. Frustrated at not being able to frequent the cafes that I love so much, particularly in Paris, in Giverny (Eure) or in Vétheuil (Val-d’Oise), I started to paint them. Thanks to my painting, I bring a piece of Yvelines to the United States. »

In his paintings, we of course find theinspiration from the American masterwith particular attention given to framing and lighting.

“I paint from photos that I have taken and which I recompose. Without music, because, for me, colors are sonorous and musical. It’s very intuitive, I love bringing light out of the shadows. »

I will be near Allée des Tilleuls in a pretty house with blue shutters,” she announces.
