Description
“Lighthouse and Buildings” by Edward Hopper is considered one of his most beautiful works due to its finely detailed realist style and compelling choice of subject matter. This painting tells a story, steeped in the solitude that typifies much of Hopper’s work but also filled with a sense of serenity and natural beauty. Although this painting is often described as an example of New Realism, which was a product of the first half of the 20th century, it is very much marked by Hopper’s unique and characteristic style.
It is a classic landscape painting but with a personal touch. While many of Hopper’s works have a dimension of social commentary, “Lighthouse and Buildings” is a softer piece. It depicts a lighthouse in Maine in a gentle and very beautiful way. It is an example of the fusion of wistful beauty and a profound sense of the lonely underside of life in the United States. The painting marks a pivotal moment in Hopper’s career as he was moving towards the success he would later have with works such as “Nighthawks”.
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.
