Edward Hopper

1882-1967

Edward Hopper was born in Nyack, New York, on July 22, 1882. He is one of the most famous American artists of the early twentieth century. In his early years he was mostly self taught; however, around 1900 he began studying at New York Institute of Art and Design. His teachers included William Merritt Chase and Rober Henri.

He was the same age as Martin Lewis and the two also shared a bond as successful commercial artists. Sometime in 1915 Lewis showed Hopper the basics in etching, and for a number of years following he used the medium as an expressive technique. Although he only produced a small number of etchings, they are remarkable works of art.
