Hopper’s work is among the most recognizable art in America. Countless artists in all disciplines have been influenced by him – but who was he?
Hopper: An American Love Story takes a deep look into Edward Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; and his critical and commercial acclaim. Using Hoppers’ own words, this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush.
Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper: An American Love Story brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.
