Edward Hopper (1882-1967) was born in New York where, from 1900 to 1905, he studied at the Chase School before a two-year visit to Paris. He exhibited in 1910, and in 1913, when he sold his first oil painting. He supported himself as an etcher and commercial artist until a further show, in 1923, established him as a professional painter. His subjects were the everyday and ordinary aspects of real life around him; houses, streets, people. In later life his work earned him the Gold Medal of the National Institute of Science and Letters.
