Edward Hopper Prints: New England

Edward Hopper: New England lighthouse

After he began to have commercial success, Edward Hopper, like many New Yorkers, began to spend his summers in New England. Here are some his most popular New England paintings:

  • Cape Cod Morning
    1950 oil on canvas. A gift of the Sara Roby Foundation to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, D.C.

  • Ground Swell
    1939 oil on canvas. Purchased with the help of the William A. Clark Fund for the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.

  • Lighthouse at Two Lights
    1929 oil on canvas. Donated by the Hugo Kastor Fund to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The museum writes: "To Hopper, the Lighthouse at Two Lights symbolized the solitary individual stoically facing the onslaught of change in an industrial society."

  • Lighthouse Hill
    1927 oil on canvas. In the collection of the Dallas Museum of Art, Dallas, Texas.

  • The Long Leg
    1935 oil on canvas. Purchased by The Huntington Library, California. The library writes: "Here, the graceful movement of the boat across the water expresses Hopper's attachment to the sea and his love of sailing even as it contributes to the picture's quietude. Like many New York artists of his generation, Hopper sought relief from summer in the city by going to the New England shore. The cool tones and sense of peace in this work offer a respite from the heat and grim of New York. The locale is Stage Harbor on the southeastern coast of Cape Cod, not far from the artist's summer home in South Truro."

  • Martha McKeen of Wellfleet
    1944 oil on canvas. In the collection of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum of Madrid, Spain.

  • Rooms by the Sea
    1951 oil on canvas. In the collection of the Yale University Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut.

  • Route 6 Eastham
    1941, oil on canvas. Purchased by the Swope Art Museum, Terre Haute, Indiana. The museum writes: "Route 6, Eastham is a superb example of Edward Hopper's classic style. The painting was produced in the fall of 1941 while the artist was on holiday at his home in South Truro, on the north arm of Cape Cod. ... Hopper captured and recreated the quiet stillness and exquisite light of early autumn in New England."

  • Second Story Sunlight
    1960 oil on canvas. Purchased with funds from the Friends of the Whitney Museum of American Art for the Whitney Museum. Max Anderson wrote: "At first glance, this painting by Edward Hopper looks like a scene you might come across in real life. Look a little closer. Something feels not-quite-right. ... what's the relationship between the two figures on the balcony? They look as if they're barely engaged with one another; a lonely emptiness fills the space between them."

  • Yawl Riding a Swell
    1935 oil on canvas. In the collection of the Worcester Art Museum, Worcester, Massachusetts.

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 artwork 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: Drug Store (1927), Chop Suey (1929), Lighthouse at Two Lights (1929), Room in New York (1932), Yawl Riding a Swell (1935), New York Movie (1939), Route 6 Eastham (1941), Martha McKeen of Wellfleet (1944), High Noon (1949), Cape Cod Morning (1950), Carolina Morning (1955), 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 roads, lighthouses, sailboats, and other maritime images from his summers in New England.
