It’s Hopper Time


We%26rsquo;re still obsessed with American master Edward Hopper (1882%26ndash;1967). His work makes three important marks upon the canvas this season, beginning with the extraordinary drawing show %26ldquo;A Painter%26rsquo;s Process,%26rdquo; organized by the Whitney Museum of American Art at the Dallas Museum
of Art (November 17 %26ndash; February 16). Highlights include the sketch for the seminal 1942 work Nighthawks %26mdash;%26nbsp;one of the paintings in the canon of American and 20th-century art. Pay attention to a rare Hopper painting offered in Christie%26rsquo;s American Art sale Thursday, December 5, in New York, where East Wind Over Weehawken, 1934, carries an estimate between $22 and 28 million (info christies.com). Then in February, the mythic Nighthawks itself arrives at the Amon Carter Museum of American Art in %26ldquo;Art and Appetite,%26rdquo; traveling from hometown museum the Art Institute of Chicago (cartermuseum.org).
