Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolourist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life.
Hopper built his paintings around light. Filled with quiet and solitude, his paintings are often warmed by the sun: “I like long shadows and early and late sunlight. I am . . . trying to paint sunlight without eliminating the form under it, if I can.” In this collection, the light that so fascinated the artist bathes New England land and sea, and enters into indoor spaces with geometric intensity. Hopper spent nearly every summer of his prolific career in New England. However, he was born and raised in Nyack, New York, and he studied painting at the New York School of Art and wintered in Greenwich Village. The outcome of this dual residency is a body of work rich in rural landscapes and seascapes, as well as studies of city life. Twelve of Hopper’s superb paintings, featuring both rural and urban scenes, are presented in this calendar.
