Edward Hopper (July 22, 1882 – May 15, 1967) was a prominent American realist painter and printmaker. 

3 WASHINGTON SQUARE: In 1913, at the famous Armory Show, Hopper earned $250 when he sold his first painting, Sailing (1911), which he had painted over an earlier self-portrait. Hopper was thirty-one, and although he hoped his first sale would lead to others in short order, his career would not catch on for many more years.Shortly after his father's death that same year, Hopper moved to the 3 Washington Square North apartment in Greenwich Village , where he would live for the rest of his life.

NIGHTHAWKS: is a 1942 oil on canvas painting by Edward Hopper that portrays people in a downtown diner late at night. It has been described as Hopper's best known work and one of the most recognizable paintings in American art. The scene was supposedly inspired by a diner (since demolished) in Greenwich Village, Hopper's neighborhood in Manhattan. Hopper himself said the painting "was suggested by a restaurant on Greenwich Avenue where two streets meet." Additionally, he noted that "I simplified the scene a great deal and made the restaurant bigger."

1882: Hopper was born in 1882 in Upper Nyack, New York, a yacht-building center on the Hudson River north of New York City. Hopper was a good student in grade school and showed talent in drawing at age five. He readily absorbed his father's intellectual tendencies and love of French and Russian cultures. He also demonstrated his mother's artistic heritage.Hopper's parents encouraged his art and kept him amply supplied with materials, instructional magazines, and illustrated books.His birthplace and boyhood home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. It is now operated as the Edward Hopper House Art Center. It serves as a nonprofit community cultural center featuring exhibitions, workshops, lectures, performances, and special events.
