Gloucester Daily Times: Unpacking Hopper: Exhibition works start to arrive

May 19, 2023

Excitement is mounting at Cape Ann Museum in anticipation of its major summer exhibition — “Edward Hopper & Cape Ann: Illuminating an American Landscape.”

The first crates came in this week with items from the Edward Hopper House Museum and Study Center in Nyack, New York, which is the artist’s boyhood home.

Inside the shipment were three small ship models Hopper made as a boy along with a paint box inscribed “E.Hopper Esq.” c. 1895-1900 and three watercolors showing Gloucester painted by his wife Josephine Nivison Hopper whose work and role also will be featured in the upcoming exhibition.
