Hopper, Edward

(1882-1967)
   Born in Nyack, New York, Edward Hopper attended art school in New York City and then the New York School of Art in 1906. That year he made his first visit to Paris, where he would return again in 1909 and 1910, but he ultimately rejected European painting styles. He initially struggled as an artist, but in 1918 he won a prize from the U.S. Shipping Board for his poster Smash the Hun. In the 1920s, he worked on etchings and had a successful exhibition of water colors, and his House by the Railroad (1925) brought him some acclaim. Like Charles Burchfield, Hooper developed as a contributor to the “American Scene,” and his work can be divided into landscapes and seascapes from the Maine coast and Cape Cod, where he established his home and studio, and his urban paintings, ranging from Automat (1927) to Chop Suey (1929) to Nighthawks (1942). His work captured the sense of alienation and isolation in modern society, yet also the beauty of buildings and locations using bold color and a uniquely American style.
