Edward Hopper is famed for his images of the big city and its disconnection, while Andrew Wyeth is revered for his visionary practice in rural isolation. An unexpected place and subject matter brought together these two celebrated American artists and a fascinating body of work resulted. On separate visits decades apart, Hopper and Wyeth explored the historic industries of Rockland, Maine, especially lime quarrying and fishing, and produced remarkable watercolors. In celebration of the Farnsworth Art Museum’s 75th anniversary, this exhibition brings rare loans of Rockland works back to the city that inspired them, supplemented by select objects from the collections of the Farnsworth and the Wyeth Foundation for American Art.

Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth: Rockland, Maine is organized by the Farnsworth Art Museum in collaboration with the Brandywine Museum of Art.

The exhibition is supplemented by a fully illustrated catalogue and a new map showing the locations of the subjects depicted within Rockland.
