Passing The Whitney Museum of American Art in New York was irresistible, the architecture drew me in. Though I found the permanent collection uninspiring, the Hopper Drawing exhibition was inspired and beautifully curated, with the preparatory sketches placed alongside the famous paintings they became. I was tight for time and telephoned my client to say I’d be two hours late because I was unable to miss spending time with the sketches. To his credit, he jumped into a taxi and joined me. Two hours became four.

  1. I keep returning to look at these one more time. Thank you again for posting them. Did you scan these from the catalog, or were you able to take photographs of the exhibit? The detail in the enlarged JPGs is amazing!
