Biography (Courtesy of AskArt): Born and raised in Nyack, New York, Edward Hopper became one of the best-known painters of 20th-century American genre and landscape. He studied at the New York Schoolof Art under William Merritt Chase and Robert Henri. Hopper later credited Henri as his most influential teacher. In 1907, he went to Paris and was exposed to Impressionism, which affected his interest in light and pattern but did not dissuade him from basic realism with defined shapes. Between 1915 and 1928, he completed nearly seventy etchings and drypoints, much influenced by the light-contrast techniques of Rembrandt and Meryon. Provenance: From the estate of Arthur N. Hosking
