Description:

A companion to the Edward Hopper watercolor exhibit at the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of American Art (NMAA) October 22, 1999-January 3, 2000, this site features an assortment of Hopper art and artifacts. Arranged in scrapbook format, these audio recordings, letters, photographs, newspaper articles, and of course, paintings are meant to be browsed page by chronological page. The scrapbook begins in Nyaak, New York 1882-1900 with family photographs and ends with Hopper's obituary and gravesite. In between, users can view exhibition catalogs, letters to friends, paintings, and miscellany such as checks from Hopper's sales. The site also allows visitors to bypass paging through the scrapbook and select items from one of several lists: Art, Friends, Places, Shows, and Index. Regardless, the exhibition does an excellent job communicating Hopper's luminous vision.
