The Hudson River played an important role in Edward Hopper’s emotional and artistic development. Growing up in Nyack, NY, he had a view of the river from his bedroom window and he spent many hours at the village docks and shipyards, sketching and watching the building and rigging of boats. As a result of his love of the river, boats and waterscapes were a common subject in his art throughout his career. This exhibition documents the work of renowned artists who lived and worked along the Hudson River during Edward Hopper’s lifetime (1882-1967) and reveals the change in artistic sensibilities and the evolving riverscape during those years.
The exhibition includes the work of Reynolds Beal (1866-1951), Joseph Biel (1891-1943), Clarence Kerr Chatterton (1890-1973), Julian O. Davidson (1853-1894), A.B. Davies (1862-1928), Dorothy Deyrup (1908-1961), William Fisher (1891-1985),
George Ehrenfried Grosz (1893-1959), Lena Gurr (1897-1992), Bertram Hartman (1882-1960), Robert Henri (1865-1929), John Henry Hill (1832 -1922), Henry Charles Lee (1864-1930), Richard Hayley Lever (1875-1958), Alzira Peirce (1908-2010),
Ruth Reeves (1892-1966), Frank Knox Martin Rehn (1848 -1914), Hal (Harry) Robinson (1867-1933), Fred Pansing (1844-1912), Jacob Getlar Smith (1898-1958), and Bayard Henry Tyler (1885-1931). This exhibition is curated by Mark Waller.
