JOSEPHINE NIVISON HOPPER: EDWARD'S MUSE
October 23, 2021 - February 20, 2022
Curated by Elizabeth Thompson Colleary
This exhibition acknowledges for the first time the crucial role that Josephine (Jo) Nivison Hopper played in the creation of much of her husband’s art, most evident in the many works they painted side by side during their courtship and 43 year marriage. Jo’s watercolors will be shown with reproductions of Edward's work and - while also presenting some of her best early "Nivison" work - her influence on her husband's art will be a focus of the exhibit.
