___
This painting depicts a house in South Truro, Cape Cod. Rays from the mid afternoon sunlight cover the rolling hills, at the same time casting the house into shadow. "Mrs. Scott’s House" was awarded the Temple Gold Medal by the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts in 1935 and was deemed by Hopper and his wife to be one of his best works. Though his art was thoroughly representational, much of the power of Hopper's compositions derives from an almost abstract sense of structure and pattern and a bold application of blocks of strong color.
