"The Stories Behind the Art of Edward Hopper"
From Automat to New York Movie to Nighthawks, Edward Hopper produced some of the most enduringly popular images in American art. His diners, movie palaces, and urban streetscapes reflect American life between the wars; his light-filled watercolors of Gloucester, Maine, and Cape Cod reflect the austere beauty of those places. And his quiet, yet riveting pictures of people in their apartments, offices, and hotel rooms express both a sense of urban isolation and anomie, and the bittersweet comfort of being alone. Join Carol Troyen, Curator Emerita of American Paintings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and organizer of the MFA’s acclaimed Edward Hopper exhibition, for a look at some of Hopper’s greatest pictures and the stories that they tell.
