"In a career of sixty years, marked by unwavering integrity and steady growth, Edward Hopper created a series of unforgettable images of modern America. His art was based on the ordinary aspects of the contemporary United States, in city, town, and country, seen with uncompromising truthfulness. No artist has painted a more revealing portrait of twentieth century America. But he was not merely an objective realist. His art was charged with strong personal emotion, with a deep attachment to our familiar everyday world, in all its ugliness, banality, and beauty." - Lloyd Goodrich
