‘Edward Hopper’s Maine’ Opens Today at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art (Wall Street Journal)

This morning’s Wall Street Journal quotes comedian Steve Martin from the exhibition catalogue of “Edward Hopper’s Maine,” the first comprehensive exhibition of Edward Hopper’s artistic production in Maine from 1914 to 1929 that opens today at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. Martin owns Hopper’s “Captain Upton’s House,” which he loaned to the Museum for the show.

On view from through October 16, 2011, “Edward Hopper’s Maine,” showcases nearly 90 rarely exhibited paintings, watercolors, drawings, and prints that provide an exhaustive look at the painter’s work over the course of nine summers in Maine.
