About The Camel's Hump

“The Camel’s Hump,” a notable artwork by Edward Hopper created in 1931, illustrates the artist’s foray into the genre of landscape painting. The oil on canvas measures 127.38 by 81.92 cm and is an exemplar of New Realism, an art movement known for its focus on realistic depiction. This artwork resides in a private collection.

The artwork depicts a serene, expansive landscape characterized by undulating hills that evoke the shape suggested by the painting’s title. The brushwork captures the delicate interplay of light and shadow, with a warm golden hue dominating the sunlit areas and contrasting with the muted tones of the shaded slopes. The composition is anchored by a sinuous road that gently meanders through the terrain, leading the viewer’s eye into the heart of the landscape. A soft sky with subtle wisps of clouds hovers above, creating an atmosphere of tranquility and isolation. Hopper’s technique imbues the scene with a sense of stillness and timelessness, inviting contemplation of the natural world’s enduring beauty.
