Whitney members may preview Modern Life: Edward Hopper and His Time before it opens to the public.
Modern Life traces the development of realism in American art between 1900 and 1940, emphasizing the diverse ways that artists depicted the sweeping transformations in urban and rural life that occurred during this period. This exhibition highlights the work of Edward Hopper, whose use of the subject matter of modern life to portray universal human experiences made him America’s most iconic realist painter of the 20th century.
Please note: de-installation will be in progress and the Museum Store will be closed during this member preview.
