Yale Acquires Important Edward Hopper Drawings 6/16/09 Antiques and the Arts

The Yale University Art Gallery has purchased important preparatory drawings by American artist Edward Hopper for two of his celebrated paintings, “Rooms by the Sea,” 1951, and “Western Motel,” 1957, both in the gallery’s collection. The drawings related to “Rooms by the Sea” are rendered on two sides of a single sheet of paper, while the sheet related to “Western Motel” contains a single sketch. Each of the drawings provides rare insight into the evolution of the related painting.
