He was 84. "The painter's wife, who announced his death Tuesday night, said he had been ill in recent weeks. She indicated he would be buried near his birth- glace in Nyack, N. Y. 'Hopper,, a raw-boned man of «' feet 5 inches ..with a steady, contemplative look, was called sf master of light. He projected the emptiness of a big city sireet or the silence of grass and dunes with a not quite definable sense of mystery. -His realistic paintings showed a vision of America -- gas sta- t'i o n s , run-down Victorian houses, storefronts, an all-night cafe -- that critics saw as a Bridge from the beginning of the century to the current Pop Art explosion. 'Hopper described his own aim. in painting as "the most exact transcription possible of my most intimate impressions ifnature." showing of American artists in 1929 and won major recognition vith a one-man retrospective exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1933. Hopper's "Night Hawks," which captured the quiet despair of a city diner arid its customers, and his "Early Sunday Morning," a forboding street artist was born in 1882 ind began studying in New York in 1900. By 1915, his etch- tags had won acclaim and a series of awards, and he turned jtooils. ;He was included in the Mu- ·eum of Modern Art's first Edward Hopper scene without people, became American classics. At the time of another retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1964, John Cannaday, art critic of The l^w York Times, wrote of the artist: "The best of his American competitiors have lardly got their second wind and are not yet in sight behind nim, and his only international competitor is Pablo Picasso." In 1961, Hopper's "House of Squam Light, Cape Ann" was shown at the White House in an exhibit arranged by Mrs. John F. Kennedy to broaden the nation's appreciation of its artists This year, Hopper was chosen as an "elder statesman" to set the tone of the United States exhibit at Brazil's Sao Paulo Bienal in September. "At this time," said William Seitz, organizer of the exhibit, "in my opinion there is no other master -- surely no one who has not already been widely seen abroad -- who can better represent both what is finest and most characteristic in the art of the United States." Negro-White Cavil War Held Likely : WASHINGTON (AP) - A Negro teacher says the civil rights struggle may reap so much discontent and loss of faith that it eventually will be reduced to a civil war between whites and Negroes, ' "If it's comforting to you, it's going to be quite a while off yet 4- though not so far off as to be outside of our life span," said Dr. Nathan Hare, assistant professor of sociology at Howard University in Washington. -In a copyrighted interview with U.S. News World Report, Hare, 33, also predicted that Stokely Carmichael would be the Negro leader "for the near future, at least." · Carmichael became the leading advocate of black power while chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, a post he left last week.
