Edward Hopper : “Ground Swell” (1939)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

Hopper’s Ground Swell is bright and summery on the surface, dark and foreboding beneath. The figures, weirdly disconnected from each other, focus their attention on a buoy, presaging unseen danger. Above, cirrus clouds auger an oncoming storm. They have set sail in search of isolation and escape, but rough seas lie ahead. It may be no coincidence that Hopper worked on this painting from August to 15 September 1939, as World War II was breaking out in Europe.
