I recently went to the Whitney Museum of American Art on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. I always wanted to go to the museum and after I recently learned that Hopper Drawing—the first major museum exhibition to focus on the drawings and creative process of Edward Hopper—was on display, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to check it out. Housed on the third floor of the museum, this comprehensive exhibition is full of sketches and drawings from Hopper’s many sketchbooks, including various sized still life drawings, self-portraits and figure drawings in pencil, chalk, charcoal and pen on paper. Many of Hopper’s most noted works, including Nighthawks, Early Sunday Morning and New York Movie are on display near a number of preparatory drawings. These drawings show Hopper’s meticulous process—from mastering dimensions to executing shadowing. The exhibition is on display thru October 6.
