Edward Hopper

Robert Hughes, the author of American Visions: The Epic History of Art in America, has written that “Edward Hopper was the quintessential realist painter of twentieth-century America.” The American public agrees with the art experts when it comes to Hopper. His work is extremely popular.

Edward Hopper did not achieve artistic acclaim easily. He was born in Nyack, New York, in 1882. He studied at the New York School of Illustrating, and later at the more prestigious New York School of Art. Here he studied under American realist Robert Henri. After his studies at the NY School of Art, Edward Hopper went to Europe to study in Paris. This was 1906, at a key time in the development of modern art.

Hopper struggled for years. He paid the bills working as a commercial illustrator. His first creative success as a painter came in 1924 when he sold out a show at the Rehn Gallery in New York. This is the year he painted The House by the Railroad. He went on to create many other well-known works of art, including: The Bootleggers (1925), Drug Store (1927), Lighthouse Hill (1927), Chop Suey (1929), Coast Guard Station (1929), Lighthouse at Two Lights (1929), Room in Brooklyn (1932), Room in New York (1932), The Long Leg (1935), Yawl Riding a Swell (1935), Ground Swell (1939), New York Movie (1939), Gas (1940), Route 6 Eastham (1941), Nighthawks (1942), Martha McKeen of Wellfleet (1944), Approaching a City (1946), High Noon (1949), Seven A.M. (1949), Cape Cod Morning (1950), Rooms by the Sea (1951), Carolina Morning (1955), People in the Sun (1960), Second Story Sunlight (1960).

In the same year that his career first took off, 1924, Edward Hopper married Josephine Verstille Nivison. “Jo” modeled for many of Edward’s paintings in the following years.

In 1967, Edward Hopper passed away, leaving us a wonderful legacy of fine art. His subject matter ranges from diners and restaurants, to rooms and houses, to women and other people. He painted cityscapes in New York, and many roadslighthousessailboats, and other images of the sea from his summers in New England.
