Edward Hopper, House by the Railroad, in "American Modern" at MoMA
Sunday August 25 2013 10:30 - 17:30
Despite having its head turned by the 20th-century European avant-garde, MoMA has always kept a place in its heart for domestic works. In fact, Edward Hopper’s House by the Railroad, included in this exhibition, was the first painting in the museum’s collection. Check out moody pieces from 1915 to 1950 that illustrate the major themes and styles of the period: the rise of cities and industry (John Marin’s abstract watercolors of lower Manhattan), rural scenes (the haunting Christina’s World by Andrew Wyeth), still-life and portraiture.
