Artist Bio: Edward Hopper

Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. While most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist and printmaker in etching.

In both his urban and rural scenes, his spare and finely calculated renderings reflected his personal vision of modern American life.

Diversity in Fine Nude Art

Contemporary approaches to nude art are diverse, not only in style but also in the meanings they attempt to convey.

Nude art has remained an essential focus of Western art since the Renaissance. Whether embracing or refashioning classical ideals, artists from the seventeenth century to the present have privileged the nude form and made it an endlessly compelling means of creative expression.
