Edward Hopper, Early Sunday Morning, 1934, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
Edward Hopper, Early Sunday Morning, 1934, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

Early Sunday Morning  ... Hopper depicts a usually busy New York street in its most quiet moment. It is reduced, free of swiftly walking patrons honking delivery vans and taxis. It is a composition of intersecting vertical and horizontal lines, loosely painted with window signs blurred. Like looking at a stage set before the actors appear, this Seventh Avenue scene emphasizes simplified forms and painterly planes. This usually busy setting is for the moment, quiet and contemplative.

Edward Hopper at New York's Whitney Museum of American Art
and the Modern Museum of Art

In late April of this year, Linda and I had the opportunity to visit New York to see some museums and a couple of Broadway shows. At the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Modern Museum of Art, we saw works by two of our favorite American painters, Edward Hopper and Andrew Wyeth.

For Hopper, windows not only allowed people to look out, but also a way to look in.
in New York Interior, a young woman is pictured partially dressed
attending to a few stitches on a garment. She's a study in isolation.


Edward Hopper, 1882-1967

Looking back at his three trips to Europe (mostly in Paris, 1906-1910), Edward Hopper later said he never heard of Pablo Picasso while he was there. But added he was most influenced by impressionists, especially Monet, Cezanne and Van Gogh.

In Paris, Hopper's palette lightened up. Before Paris, his study of the old masters such as Goya, El Greco and Diego Velazques lead Hopper to embrace dark interiors. The influence of the impressionists caused Hopper to embrace light colors and to paint with quick strokes. Even late in his career, decades after his visits to Paris, Hopper said, "I think I'm still an Impressionist."

But for most observers, Hopper's art has little in common with Monet, Cezanne or Van Gogh. Hopper summed up what he felt was important. He said, "for an American painter, in general it can be said that a nation's art is greatest when it most reflects the character of its people.”

Edward Hopper, Railroad Crossing, 1922-23, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
Edward Hopper, Railroad Crossing, 1922-23, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

Railroad Crossing is at the intersection between urban and rural America. The quiet country house is framed by telephone and power poles, humming with power and telephone and telegraph messages. The high contrast between light and dark echoes the contrast as the busy transportation and communication of urban life transects the rural life

Edward Hopper, Railroad Sunset, 1929, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York
Edward Hopper, Railroad Sunset, 1929, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York

This kind of thinking probably had its root in the time spent with Ashcan painter, Robert Henri. Henri encouraged students to "make a stir in the world" ... "It isn't the subject that counts but what you feel about it," and "Forget about art and paint pictures of what interests you in life."

For Hopper, he valued solitude in his personal life, his subjects and the stark light and shadow of his simplified landscapes, both urban and rural. He explored how individuals are wrapped in cocoons of solitude amid the hubbub and roar of life, and captured the light and shadow of physical space in which solitude exists.

In Railroad Sunset, the solitary room atop the railroad control tower is set up against the high, wide and deep empty landscape, rainbowed with the grays, purples, yellows and brilliant oranges of a fading sunset reflected on the parallel rails of track.

Hopper manages to paint a similar painting, this time at sunrise in crowded Manhattan. In Apartment Houses, East River, Hopper shows a line of identical apartment blocks awaiting the rising sun, each window providing an apartment dweller's view of the approaching day.

Again, in Cape Cod Sunset, Hopper creates contrast between interior and exterior space.

Most artists painting a portrait of a house would place it front and center. Landscaping would be presented to frame and compliment the house. But Hopper shows us the house is an intruder into the landscape, far wider and deeper than the house. Its windows with their shades and draperies allow dwellers within a glimpse of what is outside.

Whether it was an urban or rural setting, Hopper drew a distinction between solitary individuals within the context of the outside world. He did it with the crisp clean lines of neat New England houses in coastal Maine, his favored place to summer during the 1930's and 40's, and did it in Manhattan.

In New York Movie, Hopper captures an uniformed usherette stealing a quiet solitary moment while a film is playing. She is standing, illuminated by a low courtesy shaded lamp located next to the stairway up to the projectionist's room. Around the corner in the darkened theater, movie patrons take a break from the real world to view a film, which offers the illusion that life is not alienating. But the usherette isn't watching, she's lost in her private world, her concerns, and is not part of what is going on around her.

Hopper's wife Jo served as the model for this painting. Critics mused that the usherette is similar to the bored waitress in Edouard Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergeres.

Edward Hopper, New York Movie, 1939, The Museum of Modern Art, New York

For Manet's barmaid and Hopper's usherette, the enticing illusory grandeur and glamour of does the scene has now effect. They both are solitary and seemingly lost deep within their own sense of emptiness and solitude.


Morly Safer reports for CBS's Sunday Morning, Edward Hopper was a towering figure of 20th century art in America. A realist, he captured humble and mundane settings with a deep emotional reserve. A 2007 show at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts dedicated to Hopper's work from 1925 to 1950 includes 100 paintings,
watercolors and prints. (This report aired originally on June 10, 2007.)

For Hopper, windows worked two ways. Not only did they provide an opportunity to peek out, but they provide the passer by to peek in. For Hopper, widows are the bridge between the inner thought and public discourse, the boundary between the private and the public self.

In Seven AM, he pictures a neat early morning storefront before the shop owner and patrons begin their day. Its neat lines and white walls are contrasted with the blue of an early morning sky and the trees to the left, heavily drenched in early morning shadow.

This store entrance is a very public place, but Hopper shows it alone, apart from commerce. He shows us public places have private moments too.

At first glance, some might categorize this painting as a nude. Really, its not. Its not about this woman's nudity. It is about her as she is.

She is not clothed to go out in public, not adorned with jewelry or stylish fashion. She is alone, naked, unmasked, peering out into the light of the coming day. Her unlit cigarette shows the depth of her thought, unhurried, introspective. Although her stance is quite vertical, it contrasts with her horizontal shadow in the sun beam illuminating the floor. She appears to be pondering the mask and facade she must create to go out into the public world.

Andrew Wyeth, Christina's World, 1948, The Museum of Modern Art, New York
Andrew Wyeth, Christina's World, 1948, The Museum of Modern Art, New York

The Whitney Museum had only one painting by Andrew Wyeth, Winter Fields done in 1942.

It is similar to Hopper's compositional elements, a wide horizon and sky with a solitary subject in the foreground. But Wyeth's subject is a dead frozen crow.

This painting was done during WWII. It is believed Wyeth is artistically commenting on the deadly costs of war. The location of this painting is the Brandywine Valley near Wyeth's home in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, the site of a Revolutionary War battle. Wyeth is also making reference to current events. In 1942, the United States was deeply involved in the early days of World War II.

The Museum of Modern Art's only Wyeth painting is Christina's World. Again, compositionally, this painting is similar to works by Edward Hopper. Christina is placed in the foreground, solitary and unadorned looking out at a distant farm house and barn. At first glance, the two buildings seem alone and stark. Close inspection of the painting shows a ladder up to the roof, and a flurry of crows flying from the hayloft of the barn. But from the standpoint of Christina, isolated, her weak and crippled body isolating her from the rest of life, trapped in her solitude, unable to rise and walk to either the barn or house on her own, unable to climb a ladder to the roof or to fly like a crow.

The most striking thing we saw in New York was the stark contrast of how Hopper and Wyeth were displayed at the Modern Museum of Art and the Wyeth Museum of American Art.

At MOMA, Andrew Wyeth's Christina's World and Edward Hopper's New York Movie are displayed on the same wall ... in a busy corridor ... next to an escalator ... just steps from the restrooms.

At the Whitney Museum, Wyeth's Winter Fields and a the paintings pictured in this article are displayed in spacious well lighted galleries. Hopper's Early Sunday Morning has a wall of its own, and while we were there, a class of younger school children were gathered on the floor with their teacher guiding them as they expressed their impressions of the painting.

MOMA seems willing to display Wyeth and Hopper as excess inventory, like they were left over after hanging their more prestigious paintings. On the other hand, the Whitney seems to be more academic, elevating the importance of its American paintings and emphasizing education. It appeared to us that the students gathered in front of a Hopper painting was not a rarity, but an everyday event at the Whitney.

Why does MOMA persist in this placement of Wyeth and Hopper in the corridor? We are not the only people to notice. Andrew Wyeth's artist son Jamie tells the story of an usher at MOMA who tells of the most common questions he is asked. The usher said, "There are two questions, and both have the same answer. One is, 'Where is the men's room?' and the other is 'Where is Christina's World?'"
