The Quiet World of Edward Hopper

June 15–September 8, 2024

Few artists have been able to convey a distinct vision of the world as directly as Edward Hopper (American, 1882–1967). With great clarity, Hopper expressed a deeply personal response to modern life with his enigmatic depictions of urban and rural environments. The everyday, even mundane slices of life and ordinary subjects regularly indicate a psychological state of mind, most often suggesting a sense of isolation or loneliness. He rejected the influences of European modernism to work in a realistic, representational style, and create a uniquely American point of view that expresses his response to living in the twentieth century.

The Quiet World of Edward Hopper, an exclusive exhibition to the DAI, will feature the holdings from the DAI collection, which include a drawing, etchings, watercolor figure studies from his early years as an illustrator visiting Europe, along with the celebrated painting High Noon, 1949. The exhibition will also have key loans from other museums and private collections.
