Room in New York, one of the museum’s most esteemed paintings, is presented alongside works that contextualize Edward Hopper’s history and role among the early twentieth-century artists who shaped modern American art.

This gallery installation focuses on New York City’s burgeoning art scene, where artists like Hopper, inspired by the city’s residents and dense, urban landscape, pushed the limits of subject matter and representation.
