Edward Hopper – Rain On River Art Brochure

While his process for oils was meticulous, involving extensive preparatory drawings to study the subject of a single painting, his watercolors were quick and spontaneous. Edward Hopper’s Rain on River captures an instant impression of nature. The horizontality, combined with the slant of the landscape, draws the eye across the canvas. The artist’s impulsive application of pigment captures the delicate and fleeting light of a summer shower.
