The Hague  - Works by painter Edward Hopper and several early 20th century American contemporaries like Georgia O'Keeffe and Man Ray were put on display at a Dutch museum in Rotterdam on Saturday.

"We chose to exhibit Edward Hopper with his contemporaries so that his work can be shown in better context," said Mariette Maaskant, spokeswoman of the Kunsthal museum told AFP.

"Some of the artists were also his friends."

The exhibition, the biggest ever in Europe of early 20th century American art according to the organisers, will display more than 90 paintings, sketches, sculptures and photographs -- including eight Hopper paintings.

The works are from the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.

The exhibition will run until January.
