Edward Hopper’s Cape Cod: Then and Now

The New York Times posted a multimedia piece on Edward Hopper comparing Hopper paintings with the sites on Cape Cod that inspired them. Here’s the accompanying article.

I always thought I most appreciated Hopper’s representations of loneliness, particularly how he fine-tuned them to capture the perfect moment that felt both familiar and alien. Now I’m starting to think I like his atmospheric intensity. The sky, the people and the buildings (not to mention nature) look cold and remote, as if the painting was crafted to be nostalgic from the get-go. He’s pretty amazing and seeing them beside their places of origin make me appreciate his artistry more.
