Edward Hopper (American, 1882-1967) was inspired by the light and architecture of the modern American city and the everyday things that he saw in the places he visited, such as restaurants, offices, gas stations, movie theaters, and hotels. The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator, curated by Norman Rockwell Museum, presents a unique and comprehensive study of the little-known twenty year illustration career of the realist master. Many noted American modernists have successfully traversed the worlds of fine art and illustration, embracing innovation while satisfying in unique and personal ways the needs and wants of a broad popular audience.
Paperback, 25 pages.
