  Many noted American modernists have successfully traversed the worlds of fine art and illustration, embracing innovation while satisfying in unique and personal ways the needs and wants of a broad popular audience.

The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator is currently on display at The Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA through October 26th. The exhibition presents a unique and comprehensive study of the little-known twenty year illustration career of the realist master.
