Description

Edward Hopper built his paintings around light. “I like long shadows and early and late sunlight, trying to paint sunlight without eliminating the form under it, if I can.”

Early in his career, no one seemed interested in Hopper’s oil paintings and watercolors, so he turned to etching – a popular medium that would allow him to produce inexpensive images within the reach of the working class. From 1915 to the early 1920s he produced black-and-white prints in which he registered fine gradations of luminosity. Then he returned to making watercolors and oil paintings, applying his hand-won skill to the remarkable series of domestic interiors, seascapes, and cityscapes that followed.

Postcards measure 5 x 7in.
