Edward Hopper's images have long since captured the American imagination. In the art of Edward Hopper (1882-1967), tense, unhappy men and women, in whom we recognize something of our neighbors and ourselves, play out mysterious dramas in silent, stripped-down spaces--stages raked by an unrelenting and revealing light. Edward Hopper was an early twentieth century American scene painter.

Trained around the turn of the century by Robert Henri, Hopper emerged on the art scene around the time of the famous Armory show, exhibiting there, but then disappearing shortly after. He emerged again in the mid-twenties, expressing his feelings of America through scene paintings. From 1923 through the 1950s, he painted various genres of American life.
