For Edward Hopper, New York was a city that existed in the mind as well as on the map, a place that took shape through lived experience, memory, and the collective imagination. It was, he reflected late in life, “the American city that I know best and like most.” The exhibition takes a comprehensive look at Hopper’s life and work, from his early impressions of New York in sketches, prints, and illustrations, to his late paintings, in which the city served as a backdrop for his evocative distillations of urban experience. Drawing from the Whitney’s extensive holdings and amplified by key loans, the exhibition brings together many of Hopper’s iconic city pictures as well as several lesser-known, yet critically important examples.

Upon arrival at the Whitney after 11am, participants can self-guide the galleries, eat lunch (on your own) at Whitney Café or Studio Bar, and meet for guided tour at assigned time. We will depart the Whitney at 4pm. Guided tours are scheduled for 1:30-2:30pm and 2:45-3:45pm. Tours will be filled in order that trip registrations are received.

REFUNDS: Cancellations prior to February 23 are subject to a $20 cancellation fee. No refunds after February 23.
