‘Edward and Josephine Hopper in Truro’
July 11, Wednesday @ 7PM
In 2016, Provincetown Art Association and Museum acquired 96 drawings by Edward Hopper and 69 works of art by Josephine Hopper, in addition to her personal diaries, letters, and ephemera. This lecture will trace and discuss their years on Cape Cod as we look at studies for some of Hopper’s most significant paintings, and pertinent journal entries recorded by Josephine.
