Edward Hopper Early life, Education, Career, Awards, Achievements, Controversy, Unknown Facts

About (Profile/Biography):

Edward Hopper is an artist from the United States known for making prints and being a realist painter. He’s most famous for his oil paintings, but that didn’t stop him from trying other methods of art. At some point in his career he married Josephine Nivison who was also an artist. This led to many collaborations and she even inspired him quite a bit. When it came to painting he was able to turn any dull situation into something special with his minor approach and narrative twists. Because of this he received awards expressing how well he captured America in its true form.


In 1905: Hopper took a job as a cover designer at an advertising agency.

In 1912: He traveled to Gloucester, Massachusetts, seeking inspiration, and completed his first outdoor paintings in the country there.

In 1923: A Brooklyn Museum exhibit included six of Hopper's Gloucester watercolors with his wife Nivison's help.

In 1929: He created two paintings, Railroad Sunset and Chop Suey.

In 1933: Hopper's first large-scale retrospective was held at the Museum of Modern Art.

Achievements and Awards:

•    In 1918: Hopper's "Smash the Hun" poster was awarded the U.S. Shipping Board Prize.

•    In 1923: Hopper won the Logan Prize from the Chicago Society of Etchers and the W. A. Bryan Prize for his etchings.

•    In 2004: A huge collection of Edward Hopper's paintings traveled throughout Europe, stopping at the Tate Modern in London and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany.

Unknown Facts:

•    His parents supported his artistic pursuits even though he had considered becoming a naval architect. He enrolled in a study course in 1899. He quickly changed schools, enrolling in William Merritt Chase's New York School of Art and Design program. He began painting magazine covers in 1905.
•    Many people, most notably Alfred Hitchcock in the movies The Birds and Vertigo, have been inspired by Edward Hopper's spare, reflective paintings and representation of the contemporary American environment.
