Join Alexander Jackson, PhD candidate and associate tutor at the Sainsbury Institute for Art, for an in-gallery talk focusing on the iconic American realist painter, Edward Hopper.

Hopper is celebrated for his personal vision of American life, which has resonated with audiences from the 1920s to the present day. This in-gallery talk will examine Hopper’s representations of the experience of isolation and consider the relationship of his work to the broader context of art and life in modern America.
