Exhibition on Screen: Hopper: An American Love Story
“An impressive biography.” – The Guardian
“A must see.” – The Spectator
Edward Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers 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 look 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; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush.
Combined with expert interviews, diaries and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper – An American Love Story brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.
