Ooooh how I love Edward Hopper’s work! His Maine paintings especially… love his version of Blackhead on Monhegan Island, ME… This painting is entitled “The Dories, Ogunquit” painted in 1914.
Brunswick, Maine- The Bowdoin College Museum of Art has organized the first comprehensive exhibition of Edward Hopper’s artistic production in Mainefrom 1914 to 1929. On view from July 15 through October 16, 2011, Edward Hopper’s Maine will showcase nearly 90 rarely exhibited paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints that provide an exhaustive look at Hopper’s work during this period. Hopper’sMaine paintings span two critical decades of the artist’s career, yet have never been studied as a unified body of work and are often overlooked in favor of his better-known paintings from the 1930s forward. This long-overdue exhibition will present Hopper’sMaine oeuvre together for the first time, reexamining and demonstrating its significance to his later production. The Bowdoin College Museum of Art will be the exhibition’s sole venue.
