About this item

James R. Hopkins: Faces of the Heartland is the first extensive examination of this noted American painter and one of Ohio’s most significant artists. Born in tiny Irwin, Ohio, and raised on a farm outside Mechanicsburg, Ohio, Hopkins garnered many official honors and exhibited alongside the most famous artists of his time. Hopkins’s wife was Edna Boies Hopkins, a modernist printmaker known for her colored woodblock prints.
Living in Paris, Hopkins painted modish women and Impressionist nudes, but his most important works are those he made in rural, southeastern Kentucky in the Cumberland Falls region. He painted the hill people he encountered there in a penetrating and distinctive style. He was the first American painter to do so, and his works look forward to the style known as Regionalism that emerged some fifteen years later.
Hopkins was for decades a dynamic teacher and administrator, first at the Cincinnati Art Academy, where he replaced his mentor Frank Duveneck, and then at The Ohio State University where his presence is still felt. The research for this study is taken from archival sources, primary documents, and university archives. The result is the introduction of a previously under-recognized American master into the canon of American art history.
