Edward Hopper Exhibit at VMFA Eyre Bus Trip

Edward Hopper Exhibit at VMFA Eyre Bus Trip

Edward Hopper was an American realist painter and printmaker. While he is best known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching. Both in his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life.

If you are not familiar with Edward Hopper, you ought to take a few minutes to look at his work, even if that means not reading the rest of this post. The beauty in his work is eerie and solitary, but nonetheless striking. What pushes the elegance of his paintings is the strong presence of light. For that reason, it may come as no surprise to you that impressionism had a prominent influence on his work (personally I needed a reminder of this since he’s no Monet or Van Gogh). He began to paint more “impressions” of light and color after his visit to Paris in 1906, only doing so with perhaps more architecture and structure than other famous impressionists.
