The Dallas Museum of Art will present Hopper Drawing, a new approach that will look at the drawing technique and creative process of Edward Hopper. Organized by the Whitney Museum in New York, the exhibition will feature over a hundred drawings, watercolors, prints, and paintings. The collection comes from the Whitney Museum’s reserve of works by Hopper.

Considered one of the most significant American artists and certainly one of the most popular, Hoppers of the 1920s to the 1960s, represent typical American landscape of the period including Lighthouse Hill, industrial scenes and protraits. The exhibition will focus on two divided themes, of series and pairs of works.

Unlike most artists of the Great Depression, Hopper’s work grew and became profitable. In 1931 the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, paid thousands for his works. He sold 30 paintings that included watercolors that will be a part of this exhibition. The next year he contributed to the first Whitney Annual, where he exhibited every year for the rest of his life.
