Catalogue Note

“As a draftsman he was an absolute master of light and tone and could create subtle gradations of sublime effect.  And although Hopper did not make finished ‘presentation’ drawings as stand alone pieces, the degree of resolution of his best drawings put them in the realm of his great paintings.” (Carter Foster, “Edward Hopper: Drawing into Painting” in Edward Hopper, New York, 2009, p. 25)
