Our spotlight on Edward Hopper (1882-1967) examines the work of one of the most well-known American artists of the twentieth century. Through a comprehensive but accessible introduction to the oeuvre of the artist, we will explore Hopper’s contribution to modern art history. While analyzing autobiographical information to better grasp the inspiration sources of the artist, we will proceed to an in-depth analysis of his most iconic works depicting commonplace subjects.

During our time together we will analyze Hopper’s canvases evoking the isolation of big-city dwellers in bars, diners, trains, railroads, and gas stations – paying close attention to these works’ great coloristic quality, grasp of light and shade effects, and mastery of execution. We will also analyze Hopper’s take on the theme of isolation, loneliness, and lack of purpose in life, always treated by the artist with utmost compassion and empathy.

Led by an expert on modern and contemporary art and published author, Dr. Timea Andrea Lelik, this interactive seminar will explore the contribution of this great artist to American art history. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased understanding and appreciation of the most iconic works by Edward Hopper and his portrayal of American society.

Understanding Edward Hopper

Dr.Lelik gave a deep look into Hopper, while explaining that being alone is not the same as being lonely. Hopper is the consummate introvert in a world of extroverts. It is a talk that we need to watch again.

Shedding new light on Edward Hopper

As she does in all her seminars, Dr. Timea Andrea Lelik went beyond a simple review of Hopper's most famous paintings and really brought the artist to life. I was left with a feeling that I now knew Edward Hopper and had an entirely new understanding of his iconically American paintings. As Dr. Lelik explained, Solitude and Lonliness are not the same thing. This reexamination and reconsideration of the work of this American master was refreshing and I saw his paintings in a new, and reinvigorated light.
