Edward HopperEdward 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.
Nicely printed and packaged
These art cards are fun cards to send, and from what I hear, to receive.
I like notecards that are large enough to write a short letter, and the 5 x 7 inch size is perfect for that. The artwork is beautiful.
My mother recently moved to an assisted living facility, and she wanted some nice thank-you note cards. These blank cards featuring Edward Hopper seascapes were greatly appreciated by Mom, and she loved their beauty to the point of tears.
