Catherine D. Anspon | Photos by Edward Hopper’s East Wind Over Weehawken, 1934, at Christie’s
- November 25, 2013
We’re still obsessed with American master Edward Hopper (1882–1967). His work makes three important marks upon the canvas this season, beginning with the extraordinary drawing show “A Painter’s Process,” organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art at the Dallas Museum
of Art (November 17 – February 16). Highlights include the sketch for the seminal 1942 work Nighthawks — one of the paintings in the canon of American and 20th-century art. Pay attention to a rare Hopper painting offered in Christie’s American Art sale Thursday, December 5, in New York, where East Wind Over Weehawken, 1934, carries an estimate between $22 and 28 million (info christies.com). Then in February, the mythic Nighthawks itself arrives at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in “Art and Appetite,” traveling from hometown museum the Art Institute of Chicago (cartermuseum.org).
