Edward Hopper (1882-1967) USA

Edward Hopper studied to become an illustrator at the Correspondence School of Illustrating in New York City from 1899 to 1900, and at the New York School of Art from 1900 to 1906. During the 1910s he worked as a commercial artist, and his artistic breakthrough did not come until the 1920s with his traditionally realistic images with roots in plein air painting.
Hopper’s urban and rural scenes are depicted with documentary accuracy, and his art demonstrates links with American regionalism and the new objectivity. Hopper’s paintings of anonymous people and banal city life strongly reflect loneliness and isolation. Some of his most well-known works are Model Reading (1925), Room in Brooklyn (1932) and the iconic painting Nighthawks (1942).
Edward Hopper is currently considered to be one of the most influential modern American artists of the twentieth century.
