Today is the birthday of the great American realist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Hopper painting that I haven’t loved.  We reviewed the exhibition Modern Life: Edward Hopper and His Time at the Whitney a couple of years ago: read it here: https://travsd.wordpress.com/2011/04/05/modern-life-edward-hopper-and-his-time/
