Artist of the Month – May 2021

By All School News

This month at Chiswick & Bedford Park our Artist of the Month is Edward Hopper (1882 – 1967). Born in Nyack, New York, Hopper worked as a commercial advertising artist whilst painting his own art at the same time. His work captured everyday scenes such as gas stations (seen in Gas painted in 1940), cafes (including one of his most famous paintings Nightworks painted in 1942) and hotels (Western Motel painted in 1957). Some of his work can now be seen in the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
