Edward Hopper is one of my favourite painters. He was born on July 22, 1882, in Nyack, New York and he died May 15, 1967, in New York City. "Born and raised in Nyack, New York, Edward Hopper became one of the most famous painters of 20th century American, known for interior scenes of isolated figures, rural landscapes, and marine scenes."

"He was raised in a home with a view of the Hudson River and showed early art talent. Following two years of illustration, in 1901, he became a student at the New York School of Art under William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri, the latter being credited as his most influential teacher."

"In 1907, he went to Paris and was exposed to Impressionism, which affected his interest in light and pattern, but he retained a unique solidity in his work. Between 1915 and 1928, he completed nearly seventy etchings and drypoints, much influenced by Rembrandt and Meryon with the use of light contrasts."

"In 1929, he spent three weeks in Charleston, South Carolina, and produced eleven watercolors, mostly outdoor landscapes but one a church interior. During much of his career, he lived half of the year in Greenwich Village, New York in a row house facing Washington Square and the other half of the year near Truro, Massachusetts on water with a view towards Provincetown."

  1. Sonia, Hopper is one of my very favorite painters. We have a framed poster over our bed of his painting of red brick tenement buildings in NYC. Thanks for doing this one!!

  2. Hi Sonya;
    I also love the work of Edward Hopper! It was so nice to see him featured on your blog.

  3. Lovely! I especially like "Cape Cod Evening".

  4. One my favorite artists! You chose a lovely selection of his paintings for your post, Sonia. What a wonderful introduction for readers who aren't familiar with his work.

  5. Hopper's one of my favourites, too! I love the way he works with form and light. You've picked some very nice examples. You might enjoy a book by Gail Levin: Hopper's Places. It has reproductions of his paintings side by side with photos of each location. It's accompanied by some interesting writing.

  6. I had forgotten how much I like Hopper's art. His subject matter is always so interesting-- making a very ordinary scene into something so profound. Thank you for reminding me of his fine work.

  7. Some years ago I was fortunate enough to see a show of his paintings. He is indeed great

  8. I love Hopper, too, Sonia! What a great great painter he was...I love that he is one of your favorites...Beautiful reproductions and wonderful text to go with it!
    Brava Sonia, Brava!

  9. One of my very favorite artists! 'Nighthawk' is branded in my mind. I really like 'Room by the Sea'--fabulous concept. Thanks for reminding us Edward Hopper left us some wonderful images.

  10. Thank you, Sonia, for introducing me to this artist, who I'd only known by name. Uncluttered use of color and lines, and still evocative. My favorite is the Nighthawk, and the music you sent with your email, playing in the background now, is the perfect accompaniment.

    I was taken with Rooms by the Sea, but not sure what to make of that abrupt view to the water - a bit spooky.

  11. Arriquitao, tao riquitao Hopper?


  12. A brilliant artist. I had favorites on your list and it kept changing from 2nd story to the Cape Cod shots....but the last one with the girls. I really like that one.

    Thanks for another lesson in the arts...I love coming and learning new things with you.

  13. What an amazing artist. I love Cape Code Evening the best. He had an amazing talent.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Take care, Meow

  14. I love his paintings, the clear colors are amazing.

  15. He's the one that did Jimmy Dean, too, isn't he? I also like his work. Thanks for sharing.

  16. Wonder what the lady in the "Chair Car" is thinking looking at the lady reading? I love the light and the geometric forms...and people just being. Thank you for sharing a North Eastern artist!

  17. Lovely works. I love them all. What talent.

  18. Lovely pictures! Great talent!
    My favorite was Cape Cod Evening!

    Thanks Sonia.

  19. One of my favourite artists too. Thank you Sonia.

  20. Your blogs just filled with the most amazing things... thanks so much for leaving a comment so I could find you here. :)

  21. I like him too! I love the way he treats light and shadow. Rooms By The Sea is my favorite - good strong geometric shapes, simple, yet not so simple.

  22. Edward Hopper. Wonderful. There was an exhibition of his work here in London, last year or the year before, Sonia, which I saw. I've always liked his work so much. He took the feelings of loneliness alienation and turned them into art, making something positive out of them. My favourite? It has to be Nighthawks ....

  23. Hopper's work is amazing. Something about the elegance of his work reminds me of the beauty of your home.

    I enjoyed looking at your mother's art; she was very talented. Thanks for visiting by way of Michele!

  24. A real special artist. I remember his works from a game we used to play when we were kids. I always love them,especially Nighhalk

  25. i love the cape cod ones, you can almost feel the sun shining on your from his paintings. i've never heard of him before.
    thanks for dropping by my blog earlier.

  26. Thanks so much for sharing. I know I have seen some of these before but I didn't know anything about the artist. My favorite is
    Chop Suey. He really uses his colors to make the painting vivid.

    Take care,

  27. Such clean lines and lovely atmosphere in his paintings. Especially loved the two of Cape Cod and enjoyed learning about him! Thanks Sonia!

  28. Thank you, Sonia, for visiting and your link to this page! You've put together a wonderful assortment of images and great info on Hopper. I will look around your site and be back. :)
