Review: “It relieves Hopper from his ‘lonely,’ iconic status, clarifying his indebtedness to his time and honing our understanding of his originality.”
The Boston Globe

Review: “a suberb, intelligent exhibition, intimating the extent to which Hopper was both of his time and spectacularly beyond it.”
The Financial Times

Review: “curator Barbara Haskell and assistant Sasha Nicholas have done a service for Hopper’s many fans by showing his work within the broader artistic community of his era.”
USA Today

Review:The show gives us the unlikely experience of seeing Hopper the great loner in the context of his friends.”

"In Early Sunday Morning (1930) we look out rather than in, but the piercing loneliness is just as palpable."
The New York Times, Ken Johnson’s favorite paintings in New York

“Hopper is both a dreamer and a dream-slayer; he stills fashion, hope, solace, and conviction. He did that in his era; he can do it now.”
New York
