When not in the mood for painting, Edward Hopper said, "I go to the movies for a week or more. I go on a regular movie binge." Whether as an escape from his work or (as most scholars argue) an influence, Hopper's penchant for cinema has forged a lasting link between his canvases and the silver screen. In conjunction with Hopper Drawing, this summer film series mines the spectrum of period films Hopper viewed or referenced.
