Hopper loved this area of Cape Cod so much that he later built his home there.
A deeply reserved individual and intensely independent artist, Hopper sought to capture, in his words, "the sad desolation" of America. His works—including this Cape Cod landscape of a lone house next to a railroad track amid a backdrop of rolling hills—typically inject mundane scenes with a profound sense of solitude. The painter Charles Burchfield once described Hopper’s art as "silent poetry."
