Josephine Hopper (1883 - March 6, 1968) was an artist and the devoted wife of Edward Hopper, one of the best known post-World War II American realist painters.
She is depicted in most of his paintings after their marriage because she did not want him painting other female models.

This font set is based on the handwriting styles of quintessential American artist Edward Hopper and his wife, Josephine Nivison Hopper, and was produced in conjunction with the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Both artists kept a record of Edward's paintings in a series of journals, which provide the basis for this set.
The Edward Hopper font is typically masculine, with its sharp angularity, while the Josephine Hopper font presents an interesting contrast, given its elegant, rounded shape, with significantly more flourish.

In Hopper's case the company of a young fellow watercolorist, Josephine Nivison, who helped get him started, may also have had something to do with his mood.

On the far wall, between the windows and beside his easel, he placed a mirror; when he looked at it he could see into the studio behind his, which was occupied by his wife, Josephine Nivison Hopper.
She, in turn, was watching him: on the walls of her now empty studio there remains a portrait she painted of Edward Hopper, his face bleak yet monumental against a thick white background.
When she married Edward Hopper, Josephine Nivison was 41, and had been painting successfully for 16 years.

He had sold a grand total of but ONE painting when he met fellow artist, Josephine Nivison, who also introduced him to painting out of doors.
The fact that a romance blossomed between them as quickly as his skill in the medium may also have had something to do with the lighter mood of his watercolor painting.
The next year he married Josephine and continued to paint off and on in watercolor for the next forty years, yet ironically, it was the studio artist within him, that won out, creating work heavy with atmosphere and opaque paint, becoming the Edward Hopper we all know and admire.

Brian O'Doherty, who knew the Hoppers, contributed an introductory essay in which he describes Jo as "a woman of considerable complexity and several personae (there was a 'good' Josephine and a 'bad' Josephine...)." Her habit of forcing Hopper to inscribe all nude drawings "To my wife, Jo" is well-known.

The next autumn, he switched to the New York School of Art, a serious institution attended by Guy Péne du Bois (who became Hopper's life-long friend), Rockwell Kent and others, including the young Josephine Nivison, later his wife.
Jo Nivison's Pepys-like diaries give us most of what we know of the taciturn Edward.
Garrulous and opinionated, attached to the silent painter as a remora to a shark, she partially controlled the history and disposition of the works through the famous dime-store account books in which each painting was carefully described and accompanied by a small sketch, sale amounts set down in her fl backhand.
