Edward HOPPER ✿

Edward Hopper (1882-1967) is considered the foremost realist painter of 20th-century America. Though Hopper also worked in etching and watercolor and now his works are icons of modern life and society.

Hopper studied at the New York School of Art with William Merrit Chase and Robert Henri. He made several trips to Europe and was interested in European culture and art from a very early age, particularly the work of Edgar Degas and Édouard Manet.
In 1910 he settled permanently into his New York home in Washington Square, which he left only during his summer sojourns in New England, from 1930 onwards chiefly in Cape Cod, where he had a house built.
In 1924 he married Jo Nivison, who not only posed for him on numerous occasions but furthermore kept a detailed record of his work throughout his life.
