Hopper (1882-1967), had his first major retrospective at the Whitney in 1964.
In the decade following World War I, Hopper settled on a vein of imagery that has been his special glory ever since.
Hopper was also very interested in what was taking place in the art scene.
From 1960 to 1967, Hopper disappeared from Hollywood, and this trove of images helps document how he spent his time.
