HitM | Captain Upton's

Captain Upton's House (1927) is an oil painting by one of my favourite painters: Edward Hopper (1882-1967). And a sort of dream house. The sender of the postcard grew in a similar one. Alas, without the lighthouse. He wonders what looks it like today. I wonder who Captain Upton's was. (See Bryon's comment!)

On the back of the postcard, very nice stamps with homes of all types:

Postcard sent by Bryon (the USA).


  1. Captain Upton was the keeper of this Maine lighthouse around the time that Hopper painted this piece. Captain Upton it is said, sadly met his end by falling down those lighthouse stairs in 1934.


Thank you for coming. All your comments make me extremely happy.
