Edward Hopper

Overview

Edward Hopper was one of the finest American Scene painters in the Realist tradition. His passion was to portray "typical America"; his city- and landscapes are vivid reflections of the then contemporary American life. Several of his paintings, such as House by the Railroad (1925), Early Sunday Morning (1930), and Nighthawks (1942), have become icons of modern American art. They depict the loneliness, anonymity, and lack of variety in the daily life of ordinary people. Edward Hopper: Portraits of America examines...

Overview

Edward Hopper was one of the finest American Scene painters in the Realist tradition. His passion was to portray "typical America"; his city- and landscapes are vivid reflections of the then contemporary American life. Several of his paintings, such as House by the Railroad (1925), Early Sunday Morning (1930), and Nighthawks (1942), have become icons of modern American art. They depict the loneliness, anonymity, and lack of variety in the daily life of ordinary people. Edward Hopper: Portraits of America examines the apparent dichotomy within Hopper's oeuvre. On the one hand, his compositions depict deserted small towns or solitary figures in empty offices, desolate houses, or hotel rooms. On the other hand, Hopper painted the landscape of New England, where he spent almost every summer with his wife Jo, as bright and tranquil. He seemed to analyze the psychological restrictions and isolation of everyday life as well as the joy and freedom of vacation. This volume superbly illustrates this dichotomy with full-color reproductions of many of Hopper's most famous compositions. It shows how, by linking fiction and reality, concealment and revelation, Hopper's images evoke an enigmatic uncertainty, which is both mystifying and fascinating.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``For all his realism, Hopper was essentially a poet,'' writes Goodrich, and this sumptuous album, a reissue of an out-of-print 1970 monograph, is an incomparable guide to understanding that poetry. Hopper (1882-1967) gravitated to painting lunch counters, nudes in hotel rooms, lighthouses, gas stations, rooftops--underappreciated, nakedly honest figurations of America's heartland. A prophet of loneliness, this laconic individualist captured the anarchy of American cities, the quiet melancholy of small towns and suburbs. Paradoxically, his pictures have a restorative, bracing effect--perhaps, as is suggested here, because of Hopper's emotional attachment to his native environment. The late Goodrich was director of the Whitney Museum in New York and a friend of the artist, whose own comments are interspersed with a refreshingly readable text and more than 200 full-page plates. (Nov.)
From Barnes & Noble
One of America's foremost figurative painters, Hopper imbued 20th-century life with a unique vision that continues to challenge & stimulate debate. His mature work covers a range of subjects: from the rugged landscapes of Cape Cod to the impersonal architecture of New York; and from his "Hopper houses" to his celebrated portraits. And behind his luminous representations of American life lies a painful acknowledgment of the chilling isolation & essential boredom of modern life. An intriguing study of a remarkable artist, filled with a representative selection of color plates. 9" x 13".
