BOSTON, MA.- The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, presents Edward Hopper, an exhibition devoted to the work of one of the most enduringly popular American painters of the 20th century. On view through August 19, 2007. This comprehensive retrospective comprises nearly 100 paintings, watercolors, and prints, and focuses on the artist’s work from about 1925 to 1950––the period of Hopper’s greatest achievements. During this time, he produced emorable works of New York city scenes, as well as New England lighthouses and seascapes. Many paintings that will be on view are considered icons of 20th-century American art including Nighthawks (1942, The Art Institute of Chicago), Early Sunday Morning (1930, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York), and Automat (1927, Des Moines Art Center, Iowa). The exhibition is organized by the MFA, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., and the Art Institute of Chicago. The show will be accompanied by a catalogue published by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. Tour Dates: MFA: 5/6/2007–8/19/2007; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.: 9/2007–1/2008; Art Institute of Chicago: 2/2008–5/2008.
