Edward Hopper"A Hipper Hopper: With a dazzling new show, the MFA brings a New England legend out of the shadows"
- Boston Magazine
"Hopper was, in movie star terms, essentially the Henry Fonda of American art"
Edward Hopper (1882–1967) produced some of the most enduringly popular images in American art. His diners, movie palaces, and middle-class buildings reflect American life between the world wars; his light-filled watercolors of Gloucester, Maine, and Cape Cod evoke 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 the bittersweet comfort of being alone.
