Edward Hopperby Carol Troyen, Et Al, Judith A. Barter, Elliott B. Davies
An extensive study on Hopper, which accompanies a major travelling exhibition and illuminates the life and work of one of America’s most celebrated artists. Illustrated with over 150 oils, watercolors, etchings and drawings with comments on their formal and technical characteristics, this exhibition’s catalog offers an updated critical interpretation of Edward Hopper’s work and an alternative view to the extensive literature that already exists on this artist. Among the artworks included are Cape Cod Sunset, Second Story Sunlight, and some interesting self-portraits from the Whitney Museum of American Art; the famous Morning Sun from the Columbus Museum of Art, Ohio, and a number of lesser-known watercolors and oils from Hopper’s journeys to Paris. Also included are essays by several noted scholars, and an extensive chronology and bibliography. Perfect for casual perusing or serious study, this lavish exploration of Edward Hopper’s work is certain to find a wide audience.
