When did the process of putting the Edward Hopper exhibition together being?
It began about four years ago. That's the point at which I proposed the exhibition to the director, Malcolm Rogers, and got the green light. From that point, I started refining my ideas and traveling and looking at as many Hoppers as I could. Once the National Gallery in Washington and the Art Institute of Chicago were lined up as our partners, the curators at those institutions started traveling as well, often with me. We started talking about what pictures we thought were good, which ones were essential to the exhibition and as we looked, our ideas of what we wanted to do became refined.
