EXHIBITION ON SCREEN:
HOPPER: AN AMERICAN LOVE STORY
Artist Edward Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmaker and musicians have been influenced by his art– but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work? This new film takes a deep dive into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; and navigating his critical and commercial acclaim. In his own words he explains – “this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush.” Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of life in American, Hopper is arguably the most influential artist. Rothko, Banksy, Alfred Hitchcock, David Lynch, and even The Simpsons have all been inspired by Hopper. The film was released to coincide with the major Hopper exhibition (Edward Hopper’s New York) at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (Oct 22, 2021 – Mar 23, 2022).
