Sample text

To keep his creative mind cooking while he turned out illustrations on autopilot to pay the bills, Hopper continued to hone his etching skills and hoped for an opportunity to show. He drew an invitation to show at the First Annual Exhibition of the Painter-Gravers of America, an organisation founded to improve the quality of American prints. Being invited to show with this experienced collection of print makers might have been the result of campaigning by his chums Bellows and Sloan, since Hopper was hardly a prominent name as an etching artist.

S. Printing and Litho Company churned out movie posters and each one paid Hopper $10 (equivalent to $230 in 2012). He was also paid to sit through the silent melodramas, which he preferred to the pulp fiction of the time. Movies became a fascination for him that lasted the rest of his life. Even the free movies did not calm his irritation over the theatre marketing people who demanded changes in his drawings when his realistic renderings did not conform to the stereotypes the film moguls thought the public would accept.

Only the always-changing sky seems to have been heavily worked until one of its many permutations remained. On returning to New York, his mind was still lingering on the summer’s activity while through the carriage window he watched small towns rush past.
