Strong in Design and Pattern, distinctly Modernistic, is Floyed D. Hopper (born—Martin County). He studied at the John Herron Art School from 1933-1940, and also briefly at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He initially studied commercial art his first year at Herron, but switched his focus to fine art thereafter.
At Herron, Hopper studied under William Forsyth, Clifton Wheeler, Paul
Hadley, George Harding, and other notable Indiana artists. While at Herron, he became intensely interested in painting landscapes, buildings, and street scenes, populated by people at work and daily occupation—no doubt inspired by the depression-era depictions of the time.
