Except for a brief period in Chicago, Hopkin spent his entire life in Detroit. Over the course of some fifty years, he established a reputation as the city’s best-loved and most prolific painter. Contemporary records indicate that he produced at least 390 oils and watercolors, and his work was widely collected in the community. His oeuvre is dominated by marine subjects.

Lake St. Clair, located just north of Detroit and part of the Great Lakes system, forms an international boundary between Michigan and Ontario, Canada. A convenient body of water for Hopkin to visit, it is the subject of multiple recorded paintings.
