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

About (Profile/Biography):

Edward Hopper was a printmaker and realist painter from the United States. Although he is best renowned for his oil paintings, he was also an accomplished watercolorist and embossing printmaker. A significant positive influence on his career came from his marriage to fellow artist Josephine Nivison, who was an inspiration and creative collaborator in many of his projects. Hopper was a minor-key artist who subdued drama out of banal situations by "layering with a lyrical meaning" and allowing, frequently accidental, narrative interpretations. He received accolades for portraying America with "full veracity."


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.
