American painter Edward Hopper (1882 – 1967) famously painted melancholy images of alienation in daily life. His stark urban and rural scenes are eerily realistic, depicting desolate structures and painfully isolated people. A skilled watercolorist and printmaker, Hopper was primarily known for his oil paintings. Although he dreamed of being a Naval architect, once he discovered painting, he achieved quick fame and soon became America’s leading Realist. His grim scenes, mainly of New York and New England, were emphasized with severe lines, shapes, colors and angles and his later works revealed similarities to geometric abstraction.
