Edward Hopper and the Blank Canvas

Envy is not in my nature but there are two artists who I'd give my left eye if I could paint like them; Edouard Manet and Edward Hopper.  Maybe I should change my name to Edward? This is a great, hour long, documentary on Hopper, it even has interviews with him.
Here is a website with more information about Hopper. And some wise words from Hopper,  "No amount of skillful invention can replace the essential element of imagination."


  1. Wow! BEST treatment of him I've ever seen/read. Never knew actual video of him existed. Man that guy could put a rectangle in a rectangle and make it work. Always got the movie connection but this film really gets his personality. Thanks for finding this!

    1. Yep, I thought it was pretty great too. :-)
