One of America’s most compelling artists, Edward Hopper (1882-1967) lived and worked in Greenwich Village from 1913 until his death and made New York— particularly the Village— the subject of seven decades of work. His representations of the Village have been researched and debated by historians for decades. This panel will explore two of Hopper’s paintings and the Village’s influence on his work.
Panelists include: Elizabeth Finkelstein, GVSHP Director of Preservation and Research, who will present her research on suspected locations of the diner in the painting Nighthawks at the Diner; architect Linda Yowell discussing her evaluation of potential locations upon which Early Sunday Morning may have been based; and author and art historian Avis Berman who will present information on Edward Hopper's life in the Village, putting the conversation in context. The panel will be moderated by painter Simon Carr.
This program is being held in conjunction with the Whitney Musuem of American Art's current exhibit, Modern Life: Edward Hopper and His Time. This exhibit is running until April, 10.
