Edward Hopper (American, 1882–1967) built his paintings around light. “I like long shadows and early and late sunlight. I am very much interested in light, ...trying to paint sunlight without eliminating the form under it, if I can.”
Early in his career, no one seemed interested in Hopper’s oil paintings and watercolors, so he turned to etching — a popular medium that would allow him to produce inexpensive images within the reach of the working class. From 1915 to the early 1920s he produced black-and-white prints in which he registered fine gradations of luminosity. Then he returned to making watercolors and oil paintings, applying his hard-won skill to atmospheric studies of land and sea, of dwellings both humble and grand, and of the introspective people who inhabit them. Recognition followed, and Hopper was ultimately lauded as one of the twentieth century’s most important American realists.
This calendar presents a dozen classic Hopper works, courtesy of major museums in the United States and private collections.
