Edward Hopper in Vermont
Edward Hopper is one of our most famous artists, but the works he made in Vermont remain relatively unknown. On Sunday, October 6 at 2, author Bonnie Tocher Clause tells of Hopper’s summer excursions to Vermont between 1927 and 1938, and describes her research in locating his works and where they were made. Her talk will be illustrated with slides of Hopper’s Vermont watercolors, drawings and photographs. She will also discuss his connections with some of the Southern Vermont Artists of the 1920s and ‘30s.
Clause, like Hopper, is a native New Yorker who found peace and beauty in Vermont. Her first book, ‘Edward Hopper in Vermont,’ was published in October 2012. She subsequently served as guest curator for the spring 2013 exhibition of Hopper’s work at Middlebury College Museum of Art.
