Train and Bathers

Edward Hopper American

Not on view

Hopper used this print to recall a memory of Europe, showing two women bathers hiding behind bushes as a French locomotive passes over a bridge.The artist had returned to New York from Paris in 1910 and took up etching when his paintings failed to find buyers, producing about 70 prints between 1915 and 1923. He also showed men and women experiencing the distinct urban fabric of New York, and explored rural and coastal landscapes in Maine and Massachusetts. After Hopper received two awards for his prints in 1923—the Logan Prize from the Chicago Society of Etchers and the W. A. Bryan Prize—he refocused his energies on painting, often revisiting subjects that he had used etching to shape.
