Edward Hopper was one of the most famous artists of the 20th-century realism movement. While his paintings captured everyday scenes, from landscapes to cafes, his unique take on realism made his work quietly revolutionary. He showed that realism could be about conveying the artist’s vision and feelings into a painting, rather than simply aiming to accurately reproduce the scene.
This impressionist interpretation gives Edward Hopper paintings a real sense of emotion and is why they are so well-loved. Our collection of Edward Hopper artwork brings you a fascinating showcase of American life.
Glimpses of everyday life
Edward Hopper’s genius lay in hisability to capture the beauty of life’s small moments. Somehow, he created art out of even the most mundane daily tasks – from pumping gas to taking the train!
‘My aim in painting has always been the most exact transcription possible of my most intimate impression of nature.’ (Edward Hopper)
Some of the most beautiful Edward Hopper prints feature the stunning seaside landscapes of Cape Cod, where he often spent his summers. They capture the sunlight, the waves and that relaxing holiday feeling perfectly. The simplicity of ‘Rooms by the sea’ or the gorgeous ocean scene in ‘Sailing boat’ would both look fantastic hung in a nautical-inspired bathroom or a lazy, sunny conservatory.
Edward Hopper also drew inspiration from the city, from the retro cinema in ‘New York Movie’ to the late-night bar scene in one of his most famous paintings, ‘Nighthawks’. Edward Hopper has the uncanny knack of instantly transporting you to the place he is painting. Sometimes melancholy, sometimes wistful – his work is full of heart.
