Description
Edward Hopper’s realism is characterized by simplified forms modeled by strong light, as seen in The Long Leg, 1935. His compositions often convey stillness and solitude, whether depicting sailing, a recurring theme, or stark depictions of urban life. The movement of the boat in The Long Leg expresses Hopper’s love of sailing and contributes to the painting’s quietude. Hopper often sought relief from summer in the city by going to the New England shore, and this work’s cool tones and sense of peace offer respite from the heat and grime of New York.
The painting depicts Long Point Light at Provincetown, near the artist’s summer home in South Truro. Hopper’s seascapes include landscapes, lighthouses, farmhouses, and sailboats, often with strong light and fair weather.
About Edward Hopper
Edward Hopper is one of the major figures of the American realist movement, with paintings such as House by the Railroad (1925) and Nighthawks (1942).

Born in 1882 in New York State, Edward Hopper entered the prestigious New York School of Art after his secondary education. He moved to New York in 1908 where he was hired as an illustrator for advertising campaigns. He soon tired of the job and exhibited paintings in his spare time.
Around 1915, he painted scenes of American life and in 1920, he presented his first exhibition at the Whitney Studio Club, which was a great success. In 1924 he married Josephine Verstille Nivison.

His particular style, made of simple forms and rather dark colours, plays on the contrasts between light and shadow. Hopper managed to diversify his realistic approach, with staged landscapes, sometimes urban and sometimes rural. The characters he paints often inspire an impression of solitude and exclusion. Most of his oil paintings reflect a country in the throes of economic and social change. In 1945, Edward Hopper was admitted to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. He received numerous awards and honours, including the title of Doctor of Fine Arts from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1955.
