Edward Hopper, born on July 22/1882 – master painter of the American city

The Circle Theatre, EDWARD HOPPER

EDWARD HOPPER on the urban scene: “our native architecture with its hideous beauty, its fantastic roofs, pseudo-gothic, French Mansard, Colonial, mongrel or what not, with eye-searing color or delicate harmonies of faded paint, shouldering one another along interminable streets that taper off into swamps or dump heaps.”

A better description of our TORONTO you couldn’t find.

  1. Never saw this Hopper before, and it’s one of the greatest!
