In advance of the Museum's July exhibition, Edward Hopper & Cape Ann: Iluminating an American Landscape, an exhibition of 60+ works presented in partnership with the Whitney Museum of American Art, this film offers a deeper look into Hopper's art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words--this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush.
Combined with expert interviews, diaries and a startling visual reflection of American life, this film features footage of Cape Ann, where Hopper created watercolors that earned his first critical acclaim, and contributions from Dr. Elliot Bostwick Davis, guest curator of Edward Hopper & Cape Ann. Collectively these accounts bring to life one of America's most influential artists.
Space is limited, so reserve early. Light refreshments will be served.
When attending the event, please have your ticket ready and show it to a Visitors Services Representative upon arrival. Please plan on arriving fifteen minutes early for an expedited check-in.
