Manhattan Bridge Loop
|Manhattan Bridge Loop|
Manhattan Bridge Loop is a 1928 painting by American artist Edward Hopper. It is on display in the Addison Gallery of American Art of the Phillips Academy in Andover, Massachusetts, which received the painting as a gift from art collector Stephen Carlton Clark in 1932.
When the Addison Gallery presented a special exhibition about the painting in 1939, Hopper provided a statement and drawings for the show. Art historian Avis Berman has identified this painting as a significant example of how Hopper's paintings have affected the way people see New York City. Critic Jackie Wullschlager has described it as a "sombre masterpiece", "an industrial cityscape with a lone flâneur casting his long shadow on an empty sidewalk".
