The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the first prominent exhibition featuring the drawings and artistic evolution of artist Edward Hopper. The drawings disclose the tension between perception and creation in Hopper's work and document his enduring interest in the motifs of the office, the bedroom, and the road.
The exhibition displays the Whitney's full collection of Hopper's work, including over 2,500 drawings, many of which have never been shown. Hopper's early drawings are paired with more famous oil paintings, including "New York Movie" (1939) and "Office at Night" (1940).
Admission to the exhibition is free for members or with general museum admission.
