Edward Hopper Notecard Folio

$9.95

Published with: the Whitney Museum of American Art

With its often bold but always contemplative quality, its evocation of solitude, and its masterly attention to the effects of oblique sunlight, Edward Hopper’s work is revered as an existential record of 20th-century America. But, like many young artists of his generation, Hopper visited France—three times—in the century’s first decade, finding inspiration and excitement in the galleries and raffish neighborhoods of Paris. The two paintings featured in this folio reflect the painter’s experience of the city of light. Contains five each of the following notecards: Soir Bleu Le Bistro
• 10 blank notecards (5 each of 2 designs) with envelopes
• Decorative wallet-style folio
• Printed in full color on recycled paper with soy-based inks
• High-quality 250 gsm card stock
• Soft white envelopes
• Pomegranate’s notecard folios feature exclusive selections of art from museums and artists around the world

Edward Hopper

Edward Hopper’s distinctive oil paintings convey subtle emotion sometimes construed as loneliness. Often, a single figure populates a scene, imparting a sense of silence. (Hopper himself did not talk much. A friend of his reported, “Hopper had no small talk; he was famous for his monumental silences.”) Still, Hopper (American, 1882–1967) maintained that his interest lay in capturing light rather than conveying a mood. Among his influences were the Ashcan School of gritty realism and Impressionism, whose use of outdoor light he admired. Hopper sold his first piece at the 1913 Armory Show. Ten years passed before he sold another, but in the following year, when he exhibited at a New York gallery, his work sold out and established his reputation. For most of his roughly 60-year career, Hopper divided his time between New York and New England. He is recognized as one of the 20th century’s greatest realists.
