2011 44¢ Edward Hopper

American Treasures


Issue Date: August 24, 2011
City: Provincetown, MA
Quantity: 60,000,000
Printed By: Avery Dennison
Printing Method: Photogravure
Color: Multicolored

Bathed in shades of blue, The Long Leg captures mankind’s fascination with the sea, and is part of the American Treasures Series.

The oil painting by Edward Hopper pictures Provincetown Harbor’s historic Long Point Lighthouse.  A solitary sailboat glides across the waters off Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  The lonely lighthouse, calm waters, and gentle sails portray a sense of peace, seclusion, and tranquility.

The painting radiates a feeling of timelessness as well, as centuries fade against a backdrop of sand dunes and endless sky.  On a quiet afternoon, one can almost picture the Pilgrims visiting Provincetown Harbor in 1620... Charles Darby, the lightkeeper who manned the lantern during the 1800s... and the poppies that once splashed color across the grounds.

The artist who painted The Long Leg is part of Provincetown Harbor’s history as well.  During the 1920s, Edward Hopper began to earn recognition for his art.  Hopper purchased a vehicle and escaped New York’s summer heat by spending time on Cape Cod, where he and his wife built a cottage.  

Completed in 1935, The Long Leg is one of several acclaimed works by Hopper that transport viewers into his New England sanctuary filled with nature’s serenity.
