On view at the Whitney Museum of American Art through March 5, 2023, "Edward Hopper's New York" is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the artist's rich and sustained relationship with the city that served as its subject , setting and inspiration to so many of his most famous and controversial images.
New York City was Edward Hopper's home for nearly six decades (1908-1967), a period that spanned his entire career and coincided with a historic period of 'Big Apple' urban development.
Drawing inspiration from the vast collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art supplemented by major loans, the exhibition will bring together many of Edward Hopper's iconic city images such as Automat (1927), Early Sunday Morning (1930), Room in New York ( 1932), New York Movie (1939) and Morning Sun (1952), as well as several lesser-known but crucially important examples, including the artist's watercolors of downtown New York and his painting "November, Washington Square" (1932/1958).
The presentation is greatly enriched by a variety of documents from the Sanborn Hopper Archives recently acquired by the Museum - prints, correspondence, photographs and diaries which together provide new insights into the life of Edward Hopper.
