Edward Hopper: Selections from the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

http://www.crma.org/Exhibition/Exhibition.aspx

Feb 3 2018 - May 20 2018

        


This exhibition of 13 seminal works, all drawn from the collection of the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, traces the trajectory of Hopper’s career in works from 1906 to 1960. 

Moody interiors, Parisian scenes, and urban and rural images of America betray Hopper’s interests through his long and productive career. Solitary figures contemplate their lives in various locales, all highlighted with Hopper’s extraordinarily sensitive portrayal of light. 

A companion exhibition, Hopper’s World: New York, Cape Cod, and Beyond, includes 30 works depicting the places Hopper lived and worked.
