I had a chance for a pre-screening of the Hopper exhibit at the DMA that just opened.
Hopper was an excellent painter, printmaker and etcher. His works always make me think of words that would describe him as a person, sophisticated, smart, frank, lonely, detached, demure, isolated, withdrawn and serious.
I know he's best known for his works like "Nighthawks", "Chop Suey" and "Office in a Small City", and they are all wonderful works but its his landscapes which have always tugged at my heart.
If you could give me ANY painting in the world, "Corn Hill" and ESPECIALLY "The Lee Shore" would be in the top 4-6.
