60. Early Sunday Morning (1930), Edward Hopper
Where can I see it?: Whitney Museum of American Art
One of the most iconic works by one of New York’s most iconic artists, this piece was described by the man himself as “almost a literal translation of Seventh Avenue.” Though Hopper was a realist, he often pared down his subjects, simplifying them to their essential forms organized by strong geometry.—Heather Corcoran
