At home with Hopper

Where he was born and grew up, drew his first impressions and sketches, pictures that were imprinted on his memory working to make him the artist he became.

On the ground floor, an additional exhibition of works by Alastair Noble, inspired by Hopper’s boyhood fascination with yachts and other sailing boats; an installation of paper boats and poetic messages, a weightless flotilla flowing across the gallery.

Talent ran in the family: Pencil drawing by the artist’s mother, Elizabeth Griffiths Hopper, Landscape, c. 1862
Edward Hopper, Deserted House on a Mountain, c. 1900, pencil
Edward Hopper, Yachting Scene, c. 1905, a rare early watercolour of what became Hopper’s lifelong passion for maritime subjects.
