Edward Hopper (1882 - 1967) 

Edward Hopper was a prominent American Realist painter and printmaker.  While he was most popularly known for his oil paintings, he was equally proficient as a watercolorist.  Hopper was born and raised in Nyak, New York.  He studied for six years at the New York Institute of Art and Design, and two of his formative teachers were William Merritt Chase, who taught him oil painting, and Robert Henri, who encouraged him to "paint pictures of what interests you in life".

If I could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint. ~ Edward Hopper
