We are thrilled to announce our recent acquisition of 96 drawings by Edward Hopper, 69 drawings and watercolors by his wife, Josephine Hopper, and 22 diaries dating between from 1933-1956 chronicling the Hoppers’ lives on Cape Cod and beyond. [....]
Hopper’s landscapes are synonymous with Cape Cod. Arriving with Josephine in 1930, they spent almost forty years in their classic Cape house with a large window overlooking Fisher Beach. Right up until his death in 1967, the Cape is where he would go to paint what became some of his most famous works, including Cape Cod Sunset, Corn Hill, Seven A.M., and Gas. In total, he painted more than one hundred oils and watercolors depicting Cape Cod.
With this acquisition, PAAM now has the unique opportunity to expand its scholarship and research offerings through his sketches, drawings, and the writings of Mrs. Hopper, which span over three decades.
