After Hopper honors the legacy of Edward Hopper by celebrating contemporary artists inspired by his work and the places he painted with an emphasis on Cape Cod. In 1930, Edward Hopper and his wife Jo spent their first summer on Cape Cod in Massachusetts. Having traveled through many states and France, they built their home here on a bluff overlooking Cape Cod Bay.
Hopper is considered America’s greatest realist painter. His unforgettable images, infused with emotion, speak of history and progress, the buildings we inhabit, our natural environment, and people we may encounter. He inspires us to delve beyond the mere visual enabling each viewer to respond with his or her own stories and feelings — the walk in a wind-swept dune, the family home on the bay, the gas station owner once again filling a tank.
