Edward Hopper’s depiction of the 1932 New York skyline is one of the most meditative and warm of his paintings. Painted in 1932, the piece captures the light and shade of a warm, glowing evening. Paintings like the watercolor City Roofs (1932) show Hopper’s fascination with the city views visible from his windows and his rooftop. They reveal how attuned he was to the spatial dynamics and subtleties of the city’s built environment.
City Roofs is rendered by THE SKATEROOM as part of an open edition skateboard collection, officially licensed with Artist Rights Society (ARS) and the Whitney Museum of American Art. 10% of all revenue from this collection goes towards funding the incredible Cuba Skate and their recycled-plastic skatepark project.
