In 1913, Edward Hopper—then 30 years old—sold his first painting ever at the inaugural Armory Show in New York to Thomas F. Vietor, a merchant from New Jersey. The piece, titled Sailing, is now in the permanent collection of the Carnegie Museum of Art, along with 16 other Hopper paintings, drawings, and etchings.

For the first time, the Pittsburgh museum is displaying its Hopper collection in its entirety as part of the new exhibition “CMOA Collects Edward Hopper.”

Even though it just opened July 25, “CMOA Collects Edward Hopper” is already the top exhibit worth seeing at the Carnegie Museum of Art.

Not since 1937 has the museum mounted an exhibition dedicated solely to the iconic American artist, known best for his painting “Nighthawks” (1942), which portrays people in a New York City diner late at night. It is Hopper's most famous work and is one of the most recognizable paintings in American art.
