Press Event: Edward Hopper

'Edward Hopper' marks the first time in more than 25 years that a comprehensive exhibition of this great artist's work has been seen in American museums outside New York and is the most complete survey of his career ever presented in Washington. The exhibition of 96 paintings and works on paper focuses on the period of the artist's great achievements—from about 1925 to mid century—when he produced such iconic paintings as Automat (1927), Drug Store (1927), 'Early Sunday Morning' (1930), 'New York Movie' (1939), and 'Nighthawks' (1942).
