Edward Hopper is an American reality painter and printer. Although he is widely known for his oil paintings, he is just as proficient as a watercolourist and an etching printer. Her career clearly benefits from her marriage to artist Josephine Nivison, who has greatly contributed to her work, both as a life model and as a creative partner. Hopper is a major artist, creating light dramas beyond the usual themes of `` layers of poetic sense '', inviting narrative interpretations, often unintentional. He has been praised for his "absolute purity" in the America he describes.
