Biography from Brandywine River Museum:
[NOTE: Following information taken from artist's web site: http://www.edwardloperjr.com/about_the_artist ---1/19/2010]

Wilmington, Delaware, born Edward Loper, Jr., is a self-taught artist whose technique, described as "A way to see," has led him to success over the past five decades.

Since the early 1960s, Loper's works have been showcased not only in the Barnes Foundation but also in numerous National Exhibitions, Cultural Festivals and Publications, such as Delaware Today Magazine and Vistas publication of the Barnes Foundation.  His paintings are also collected not only by private collectors, but also by corporate art collections, such as Wilmington Trust, Blue Cross, Christiana Care and Delaware Trust.

Edward Loper, Jr., taught Art, Photography, and Woodworking at Wilmington High School in the 1960s.  He also instructed art, pottery and sculpture at the West End Neighborhood House and Kingwood Center.  In the 1970s, he headed the Visual Arts Department at Christiana Cultural Arts Center.  He attended the Barnes Foundation in Merion, PA, from 1977 to 1978.
