Edward Hopper in Vermont”
An Evening with Bonnie Tocher Clause

This talk is part of the Thursday evening series at the Norman Rockwell Museum exploring the life and art of Edward Hopper, whose career as an illustrator is highlighted in the NRM’s current exhibition, The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator.  A reception follows each program. Free with Museum admission.

Edward and Jo Hopper first discovered the scenic beauty of Vermont in 1927, traveling there again in 1935 and 1936 in their continuing search for new places to paint. During these trips and two extended sojourns on a farm in South Royalton, in 1937 and ’38, Edward Hopper produced some two dozen paintings—watercolors that are among the most distinctive of his regional works. Author Bonnie Tocher Clause will tell the story of Hopper’s visits to Vermont and the sites depicted in his singular interpretations of the region. Edward Hopper in Vermont (University Press of New England, 2012) will be available for purchase and signing.
