Hopper: An American Love Story

Hopper: An American Love Story

Phil Grabsky

United Kingdom | 2022 | 1 h 34 min
Available on ARTS.FILM from July 26, 2024

Edward Hoppers work is the most recognisable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers, and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?
This new film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush. Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper – An American love story brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.
