Edward Hopper: Exploring the American Realist Painter

Edward Hopper is regarded as the quintessential American realist painter of the twentieth century. His images — nighthawks in a clean, well-lighted cafe; a deserted street on a Sunday morning; a man, a woman alone in spare room, even when they are together — are deeply embedded in the American imagination. How do Hopper’s paintings reflect the time in which they were painted? How do they relate to literature and film? What does it mean to say that Hopper was a “realist painter”? This webinar will address these and other questions through an examination of his major works.
