Shop Artists > Edward Hopper
Edward Hopper was an American realist painter and printmaker who not only prevailed in oils, but also mastered watercolor and etching. He was born in Nyack, New York in 1882 to a middle-class family who encouraged his artwork from the beginning. At seventeen, he briefly attended the Correspondence School of Illustrating in New York City only to enroll at the New York School of Art. During his six years of attendance, he was under the tutelage of William Merritt Chase (1849-1916) and Robert Henri (1865-1929), the latter a leading realist painter whose lessons will have a lasting impression. Around 1906, Hopper took a position as an illustrator for a while before traveling to Europe. He continued to return to Paris, Spain and other European destinations over the next four years. During these visits, he encountered the work of Edgar Degas (1834-1917) and Édouard Manet (1832-1883), two leading realist artists who specialized in urban landscapes.
 
His success did not start until 1933, ten years after his marriage to Josephine Verstille Nivison (1883-1968), a fellow artist and student of Robert Henri’s. Jo, as he called her, played a large role in his art as she posed for nearly all of his female figures, was his bookkeeper, set arranger and record keeper on all aspects of his paintings. The entirety of Hopper's mature artwork consisted of estrangement and isolation whether the scene was of an urban setting, a landscape in New England or the interior of a building. His figures, when he included them, portrayed a disconnection with each other and a feeling of seclusion. They are rarely in a domestic setting, but rather in a deserted public location. Hopper enjoyed seeking out tensions to paint when he traveled, whether it was between people or the dichotomy between expansion and original design in a landscape. His work suggested the people's individual suffering that existed in society in postwar America.
 
In the 1930’s through the 50’s, The Hoppers spent their summers in Cape Cod, Massachusetts, eventually building a home in Truro, Massachusetts. He began traveling extensively through the United States to gather more material, going as far as Mexico and road trips to California. Despite winning many awards and his success, Edward Hopper’s style grew out of favor with the rise of Abstract Expressionism in the 1940s. Just before his death in 1967, his artwork began to gain followers again with his timeless urban realism scenes touching a new generation of souls.
