AGE OF INDUSTRY

A lover of personal humanity and unspoiled natural beauty, one of Hoppé’s most striking themes was a seemingly contradictory one, the world of heavy industry. As a humanist, he saw the aesthetic, personal dimension of creation, for good or bad, that manifested itself in factories, mines, shipyards, railroads, and even their belching smokestacks.
